Sunday Mass Obligation During this COVID-19 Pandemic
On September 14, 2020 the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass and Holy Days of Obligation expired and it becomes the responsibility of those who are capable and not prohibited by other circumstances to attend Sunday Mass. Archbishop Listecki communicated the reasons to be excused from this obligation, such as:
- When it is impossible to attend Mass—for example, you are traveling, bad weather, working.
- If you are ill or are caring for a person that is ill or taking care of someone who needs your company and attention.
- If you are at risk to become ill due to underlying medical conditions or have a compromised immune system.
- If you are genuinely afraid of becoming sick because of at-risk factors, such as a pre-existingcondition, age or a compromised immune system.
It is up to each individual to weigh their own circumstances and use their good conscience. Remember, a well-formed conscience is upright and truthful. I hope this is helpful. Any questions please call me and let’s discuss.
Special prayers for good health, less anxiety, blessings and Shalom upon you.
Father Joe Aufdermauer
Here are a few points to remember:
- Per Governor Evers' state mandate, wearing a mask at Seton is required as of August 1, 2020.
- We will continue to offer Mass Online - Sundays at 8:30 am, indefinitely.
- We have made our best efforts for sanitizing and social distancing to help everyone be safe.
- If you have a fever or flu-like symptoms, please remain at home.
- At any time, if you feel uncomfortable before you arrive or even after you arrive, know that you are excused.
- The church doors will be propped open upon your arrival, but seating is limited. If church doors are closed, we have reached capacity. Please arrive early.
- It is recommended that you bring along hand sanitizer if desired.
We will joyfully await your return when you do feel comfortable returning to Mass.
