This week, the Diocese released this announcement regarding the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays:
“The dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation has been extended indefinitely. This is in keeping with the rest of the Ohio Catholic Conference. Those who are feeling well and who are not in the high risk categories should be encouraged to come to Mass. Those who are in the high risk categories, or who are not feeling well are encouraged to remain home.”
We pray for those who must continue to stay home to protect themselves or their loved ones. We also would love to have all who are not in the high-risk groups to rejoin us at Mass!
The dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation has been extended indefinitely.Bishop Brennan, in a message to priests of the Diocese of Columbus
