May 28: Regarding Dispensation from the Obligation to Attend Sunday Mass

On May 13, 2020, Archbishop Vigneron issued a rescript dispensing the Faithful in the Archdiocese, with the exception of priests and bishops, from the obligation presenting themselves in person to participate at the Sunday Mass through and including September 6, 2020; however, the obligation always remains to abstain from those works and affairs which hinder the worship to be rendered to God, the joy proper to the Lord’s day, or the suitable relaxation of mind and body.
