Public Masses Celebrated with Restrictions

In response to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the directives provided by the government and health department officials at the local, state and national levels Archbishop Pérez has dispensed the faithful of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia dispensed from the obligation of attending Sunday Mass. After a period when public Mass was prohibited, public Mass is permitted, but not required. Those who feel sick should not attend, and those with compromised immune systems should not feel guilty for not attending.

The faithful who do not attend Mass should strive to keep the Lord's Day holy by special prayers, family prayer services, watching Mass on TV or the internet, etc. The parish continues to live stream Sunday Mass from this website, as well as the 9:00 A.M. daily Mass, Monday through Friday, and the 8:00 A.M. Mass on Saturday. The home page also has a weekly aid for a Family Prayer Service at home.

Face masks must be worn by all attending Mass, and social distance must be maintained while seated and while processing in and out of Church and to and from Communion.

After each Mass the Church (or Chapel) is sanitized.
