Archbishop Carlson Grants General Permission to Resume Public Masses Beginning May 18.
The general dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation will remain in place for all Catholics of the Archdiocese until further notice, as many individuals continue to have concerns for the health and safety of themselves and their loved ones.
“I am filled with the joy of this Easter season to be able to once again reunite our faithful in the celebration of public Masses, centered around the Eucharist given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ. I am grateful to our priests, deacons and all parish staffs for working closely with me and archdiocesan leadership to continue to guide parish communities in their faith journeys, while prudently following all protocols to keep God’s people safe and healthy.” – Archbishop Carlson
