Bishop Vann Revokes Dispensation from Being Physically Present at Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation


However, as has always been the case, those who are currently ill or believe they may have recently been exposed to someone with a contagious illness are morally excused from attending Mass. Those dispensed or excused from the obligation to attend Mass must still fulfill the divine command to keep holy the Lord’s Day and are encouraged to do so by participating in a livestream broadcast of the Sunday Mass, spending time in prayer, reading the Bible, praying the Rosary and/or meditating on the Lord’s passion, death and resurrection.
