Our COVID-19 policies during the conference will match those of St. Patrick Catholic Church at the time of the conference (i.e. the same guidelines which are followed at Mass). The current guidelines are the conference venue will utilize a maximum of 35% of the fire code capacity for social distancing purposes, and masks must be worn at all times. There will also be hand sanitizer stations and additional masks available at the entrance. At a recent gathering, we employed modified guidelines for prayer ministry which included participants staying at their chairs for prayer ministry. Participants simply stood or raised their hand to express interest in receiving prayer. The prayer ministers then stood behind them (wearing masks) to avoid breathing directly into their face. Our prayer ministers have also been instructed to avoid touching any participant’s head or hands as well. We expect we will be employing very similar guidelines, however if there is any change to this, we will update this information accordingly. Be advised that there is inherent risk of transmission of COVID-19 in large group gatherings, especially with attendees traveling by air. Therefore, we recommend that if you have any concerns with these policies and especially if you are in a vulnerable category that you strongly consider attending the conference with our ONLINE ticket.
