Public Liturgies at MBS Church

"Your kindness should be known to all. The Lord is near."

Philippians 4:5

 

Given the availability of vaccines and the increasing number of adults receiving vaccines in Metro Atlanta, in-person liturgies have resumed at Most Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church. We will continue livestreaming 9am Sunday Eucharist and other important liturgies. 

Reduced capacity in-person liturgies ensure that social distancing is maintained. Participants are required to wear masks.

In-person liturgies are accessed through an online ticketing system without exception (see details below).

 

Ministry Opportunities

A safe and sustainable resumption of in-person liturgies at Most Blessed Sacrament requires the support of volunteers. Consider serving the People of God in the following capacities:

LECTOR: proclaim the word of God during liturgies.

TECH SUPPORT: manage the livestream (basic familiarity with webcams, Zoom, and YouTube).    

ATTENDANT: ensure a safe and orderly experience for those attending public liturgies.

If you are interested in volunteering, please send an email to the points of contact listed above. All volunteers will receive training.

 

Ticketing for In-Person Liturgies - General

 

Why Do We Have A Ticketing Process?

Our priority is the health and safety of our parish community. The ticketing process ensures the following:

1) We are able to maintain social distancing.

2) We are able to notify attendees about potential COVID-19 exposure. 

 

Mindfulness of Others

  • Give your fellow Christians an opportunity to access a liturgy by reserving tickets mindfully.
  • If you are able to secure a ticket for a in-person liturgy, you are encouraged to delay your attempt at securing a ticket at the next in-person liturgy until the last hour of the ticketing window. 
  • Help those who are not tech-savvy by offering to help them reserve a ticket. 

Ticketed Entry

  • Only individuals/households/groups who secure a ticket through the online ticketing system will be granted admittance to the Chapel for a given in-person liturgy. 
  • Each in-person liturgy has a ticket access window during which tickets can be secured. For Sunday Eucharist, the window is 12noon on Wednesday until 12noon on Saturday. 
  • Once the maximum capacity is reached, tickets will no longer be available. 
  • If the ticket access window expires before maximum capacity is reached, the number of reserved seats will be locked in. That is, ticket access will not be extended even if there is space available. 

Reserving Tickets

  • An individual can reserve up to five (5) tickets for themselves and/or their household/group. 
  • If your household/group exceeds five (5) individuals, a second ticket will need to be reserved under a different name to accommodate your household/group. 
  • The individual who reserves the ticket will provide their contact information and will serve as the contact person for the group.

Unable to Attend After Securing a Ticket?

  • We understand that unexpected events can change your plans.
  • If you are ultimately unable to attend a liturgy after securing a ticket, do not contact the parish staff. 
  • Your claimed entry tickets will not be reassigned (your tickets will not be made available to others).

Ministry Volunteers

  • Lectors, attendants, and tech support assigned to serve at an in-person liturgy do not need to reserve a ticket for themselves but will need to reserve tickets for family/friends who will accompany them at the same public liturgy (ministry volunteers can serve as the contact person for ticket reservations but should not include themselves in the ticket count).
