Brief outline of COVID-19 DOSA Directives
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:
