Dispensation and Returning to Mass- Message from Bishop Gruss

(updated 10/2/2020)

Dear Friends in Christ,

May the peace of Christ be with you.

With fall officially here, we enter another season which reminds us how much our lives and ministries have been impacted and changed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of our students have returned to school under strict guidelines. Parishes have welcomed back young people to faith formation classes, kicked off parish programs and are engaging in service and outreach projects and events, also under new guidelines. These initiatives look and will be experienced differently this year, just as our Masses are experienced differently in following our Liturgical Guidelines and Protocols for Resumption of Public Masses.
