Beginning July 1, Archbishop Rozanski is lifting the dispensation of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass for all of the faithful in the Archdiocese of St. Louis—meaning that we will all be called to return to Holy Mass in-person each Sunday.
Our parish will continue to follow protocols to help parishioners feel safe and comfortable returning to Mass.
Those who are sick, homebound, immunocompromised and gravely concerned for their health are exempt from the obligation to attend Mass, which has always been the case in normal times.
“Participation in the communal celebration of the Sunday Eucharist is a testimony of belonging and of being faithful to Christ and to his Church. The faithful give witness by this to their communion in faith and charity. Together they testify to God's holiness and their hope of salvation. They strengthen one another under the guidance of the Holy Spirit." CCC 2182
We look forward to the return of the faithful to weekly Sunday Mass!
