DISPENSATION FROM MASS LIFTED AS OF JUNE 5TH

Following a recent update in Covid guidelines, Bishop Michael Fisher has restored the obligation to attend Mass for those who are healthy and not at great risk. The presumption of the faithful should be that, unless they are at an enhanced risk, sick or caring for others who are at risk or sick, the obligation to attend Sunday Mass now resumes, effective the weekend of June 5th – 6th, 2021, the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ.

At all Masses and parish events, masks should continue to be worn upon entry and exit, and at any time where there is movement or closeness to others, for instance, when the Communion procession forms. (Ministers of the Eucharist should be masked when distributing Communion as should those receiving.) When seated, or when at an outdoor gathering, masks may be removed/relaxed at the discretion of the individual.
