Dispensation from Sunday Mass – has been indefinitely continued as of May 5th, 2020

By his authority as the diocesan bishop to dispense from universal ecclesiastical laws, Bishop Estévez has indefinitely dispensed from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass three categories of people for as long as the specific condition below continues: 

  • All who are sick and those who are caring for them
  • Those who because of age or infirmity are at higher risk for contracting the coronavirus
  • Those who have been exposed to the coronavirus because of travel or other circumstances 

And to further protect public health and calm fears, Bishop Estévez has also dispensed all the Catholic faithful from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass until the suspension of Mass is rescinded.

Our question brings to mind that Jesus told us: I do not give you the peace that the world gives. What then is the peace that Jesus brings? He tells us that his peace is...

A WALK THROUGH THE MASS: A STEP-BY-STEP EXPLANATION – 1

As Catholics, we know that the Holy Mass is the center of our faith and the source of divine life. Hence, the Church teaches us to participate in the Holy Mass regularly on Sundays and on Holydays of obligation and also on weekdays, whenever possible. If we understand the value of the Mass, we would certainly participate in it actively and regularly. I feel that a simple explanation on each part...
