The New Normal

Bishop Noonan has issued a general dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass.  Those who are experiencing coughing, fever and cold-like symptoms, out of consideration for themselves and others, are NOT to attend Mass. People who are not yet comfortable being in church are encouraged to participate via livestream.

We have received updated instructions on May 15 from Bishop Noonan on procedures for the phased reopening of parish churches. For St. Brendan the Navigator, this means:

  • Weekday Mass is now being celebrate Monday through Saturday at 8:30am. Entrance is only through the main door. Social distancing is required. The church doors will be locked immediately after Mass so that the staff can sanitize the church and restrooms.
  • Confessions are heard Saturday after the 8:30am Mass in a space outside the confessional.

There are some significant changes to how we gather and celebrate. Please CLICK HERE for more detailed information and updated instructions. 


In addition, St. Margaret Mary Church in Winter Park offers a livestream and a delayed viewing of their 9:30am Sunday Mass at
