In solidarity with our civil authorities and out of pastoral concern for the health and wellbeing of all of our people, I have decided to offer the following dispensations. By my authority as Diocesan Bishop to dispense from Universal Ecclesiastical Laws,
I dispense from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass:
· All who are sick and those who are caring for them
· Those who because of age or infirmity are at greater risk for contracting diseases
· Those have been exposed to the coronavirus because of travel or other circumstances.
This dispensation is valid for as long as any of the above-referenced conditions continue.
