Memo regarding updated CDC guidelines.

Praise God that the CDC has issued new GUIDELINES regarding the pandemic. Bishop Hurley is currently seeking information and clarity and what it will mean for our churches, schools and Catholic life. As for now, he asks that all parishes maintain current protocols over the coming weekend until decisions can be made. Therefore, mask wearing, distancing, etc. will remain in place at the weekend Masses. Bishop Hurley has indicated that THE DISPENSATION FROM THE OBLIGATION TO ATTEND MASS WILL BE LIFTED beginning next weekend, Pentecost, May 29/30th except for those with underlying medical conditions that prevent them from attending Mass. Updates will be sent via this app as well as posted on the parish website as it becomes available. Thank you.
