Covid Restrictions for Church


There is a LIMIT TO THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE ALLOWED in the church building. The number is not to exceed 50% of the seating capacity of the church. We will have signs posted outside the church indicating Mass times and locations. Mass will also be live streamed at 9AM on Sundays and can be viewed on the parish Facebook page and reviewed after that on Sunday morning.  Check our website or a voice message can be heard by calling the Parish Office at 609 – 967 – 3746 for Mass times.




There will be a SPECIFIC ENTRANCE TO THE CHURCH AND TWO EXITS from the church. The one entrance to Maris Stella Church will be on Dune Drive and at St. Paul’s on Third Avenue. In both Churches you must exit at the two doors on either side of the sanctuary. There will be some inconvenience for where you park, needing to walk outside the building to enter Church or to exit and reach your car.  We ask your indulgence to this requirement.


EVERYONE MUST WEAR A FACE MASK. We are all experiencing this rule in grocery stores and other businesses. Greeters at the entrance will ensure that no one enters without a mask.  The only exception is for children under the age of two.  Masks are to be worn throughout the Mass.


SOCIAL DISTANCING will be exercised within the church. Ushers will escort a group of one or two people to the center aisles and groups of three or more to the side aisles. This allows us to occupy as much space as we can.
