Worship Aides

June 27 -July 3, 2021-Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Guidelines, Restrictions and Safety for attending Mass in person can be found HERE


In a letter dated May 13, 2021, Archbishop Schnurr, in conjunction with all the Bishops in Ohio, has lifted the dispensation from Sunday worship. Beginning on June 6, 2021 (and June 5th Vigil Masses), all Catholics must attend Sunday Mass. Not attending Sunday Mass is a mortal sin and one must receive the sacrament of Reconciliation before receiving Holy Communion. The document states, “As has always been the case, those who have a serious reason are exempt from attending Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2181). This includes those who are ill, have significant health risk factors or care for someone who is immuno-compromised or ill, as well as those who have significant fear or anxiety of contracting the coronavirus in a large group of persons. Nevertheless, these persons should observe the Lord’s Day (CIC, can. 1247) and are encouraged to spend time in prayer on Sunday, meditating on the Lord’s passion, death and resurrection…” Mass will continue to be “Live Streamed” on Facebook.

Please Note: the lifting of these restrictions is predicated on a continued downward trend of Covid-19 cases. A significant outbreak in our community could lead to the re-instatement of these and/or other protocols. Please do your part in helping ensure that we remain safe and healthy.
