A Word to Newcomers
You are most welcome to come and assist at Mass here at St. Pius V Chapel. Please be advised of the following dress code and rules regarding the reception of Holy Communion: According to Apostolic Tradition and out of respect for our Lord's presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament, the faithful must dress modestly while in the church and assisting at Holy Mass. Hence, please observe the dress code.
Women and girls must wear a modest dress and cover their heads with either a hat or chapel veil. Short skirts or dresses that are above the knees, revealing blouses (such as low cut, sleeveless or see-through), slacks or shorts of any length do not meet the norms of Christian modesty.
Men and boys should be wearing neat trousers, a coat, jacket or a dress sweater and tie. Jeans, shorts, open shirts, sneakers and other such casual dress are inappropriate and do not meet the standards for assisting at Holy Mass.
Please be advised that the priest reserves the right to refuse Holy Communion to anyone who, in his prudent judgment, does not meet the requirements of the Rules for Receiving Holy Communion and Dress Code as stated in the church bulletin. In addition, you may listen to Fr. Baumberger's announcement of the dress code for assisting at Mass at St. Pius V Chapel.
