NOTICE: End of Dispensation
End of Dispensation for Sunday Mass Attendance: July 1, 2021
Bishop Felton of Duluth and the other bishops of Minnesota have issued a letter explaining that July 1 Marks the End of the Dispensation for Sunday Mass attendance in Minnesota. Although the general dispensation will no longer be available, the Church has always recognized that certain circumstances can excuse a person from the requirement to observe the obligation. (Click here to view a copy of the statement.)
Why is attending Mass in-person so important? The celebration of the Eucharist truly is the source and summit of our faith. Pope Francis, in his homily on the Feast of Corpus Christi in 2018, said, “Jesus prepares a place for us here below because the Eucharist is the beating heart of the Church. It gives her birth and rebirth; it gathers her together and gives her strength. But the Eucharist also prepares for us a place on high, in eternity, for it is the Bread of heaven.” Thank you for your understanding and for those who are just beginning to make your return to Mass, welcome home!
