Christmas Seating Reservations
Despite the present pandemic, sufficient social-distant seating has been available for weekday and weekend Masses. Major celebrations, however, such as Christmas and Easter, have routinely brought numbers that would severely compromise social-distancing requirements.
In order to provide a relatively safe environment for anyone wishing to attend Mass on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, reserve seating is required. Signup is available on-line via the link(s) below or by speaking with the parish secretary at 440.707.6707, x0 Monday or Tuesday 9AM to 2PM, and Wednesday→Friday from 9AM until Noon.
Before requesting a reservation, please peruse the graphic below to see how the various sections of the church and how pews are numbered.
While every pew can fit up to 10 individuals, COVID does not allow such capacity. Thus, each pew can now accommodate a max of 5 people … unless all occupants of the pew reside under the same roof. Families of 3-or-more people living under the same roof should reserve BOTH the aisle AND center section of the same pew (eg. 3A & 3M or 5M & 5W).
Reserving your pew via SignUpGenius
is a FOUR STEP PROCESS:
(to skip this tutorial & reserve a pew, click here)
- From the list of Masses that follow these instructions you’ll select the Mass date/time for which you desire to reserve space.
- In the new tab that opens, scroll down the SignUpGenius page until you find seat reservations (which will look similar to the following image):
Pews already reserved will have a name listed & NO “Sign Up” button (eg. 2A & 2M above). Look for open pews (identifiable by the “Sign Up” button being displayed) and choose the place(s) you desire to sit by clicking “Sign Up” (eg. 3A, 3M & 3W above). When you’ve checked the pew(s) in which you want to sit, CLICK “Submit and Sign Up”
- You’ll then be sent to the page where you actually make your reservation;
it is required that you provide your name, email, number of people in your group, and a phone number:
You must provide your name, email, size of your party, and a phone number in order to reserve a seat; once entered, click “Sign Up Now”.
If you fail to enter any of the required info, it will NOT accept your reservation; in that case, fix your oversight & click “Sign Up Now”.
- When you land a the following confirmation page, you’ll know your reservation has been successful:
You will also receive an email confirmation of your reservation.
Make sure to review this confirmation – to ensure that you actually signed up for the Mass time you intended to sign up for. ALSO, please note the DAY & TIME of your reservation; there are 4 Christmas Masses and each reservation page appears nearly identical to the others.
Having reviewed the process of signing up,
now is the time for you to reserve your pew.
