Diocesan COVID-19 Directives
Diocesan Directives from the Bishop's Office regarding Mass attendance- effective May 2020
Even with the resumption of public liturgies, those who are most vulnerable should not attend Mass in-person; rather they should continue to watch our televised Mass the "Chalice of Salvation" or their parish's streaming or cablecast Masses.
The dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains even after churches reopen out of an abundance of caution and concern for the most vulnerable who are most susceptible to contract this virus.
Please visit the Diocesan website for current information regarding COVID-19. http://diospringfield.org/directives-for-confronting-the-coronavirus/
Please continue to follow all health protocols to stay safe.
