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:
- All who are sick and those who are caring for them

- 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has also dispensed all the Catholic faithful from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass until the suspension of Mass is rescinded.
