We now have electronic doors located at the church main entrance and canopy entrance. They will be on and operating for all the weekday and Sunday Masses. We hope that our parishioners with canes, walkers and wheel chairs will find them to be helpful. Each electronic door is identified by the blue and yellow “Automatic Door” sticker. One may enter or exit by pressing slam plate marked “Push To Open”. Slam plates are located both outside and inside the church. When the slam plate is pressed the door will open for about 20 seconds.
There are two more things to keep in mind. First, after the door has been activated, it will close automatically. However, if it is set on “soft close” it may not latch. In this case, the door will have to be pulled shut if you entered or pushed shut if you exited.
Secondly, the doors will continue to be locked outside of the scheduled Mass or church service times. In this case, the e-door switch will be in the off position. Those who keep and adoration hour will still need to ring the doorbell to be let in. Check to make sure the door has latched behind you as you enter – and pull it shut if it has not. We cannot leave the power switch on with the doors locked, because activating the doors will stress the motor.
