NEWS FROM THE ARCHBISHOP

  • The suspension of public daily and Sunday Mass throughout the archdiocese continues in place. Priests may continue to celebrate Mass without a congregation.
  • The distribution of Holy Communion is permitted only as Viaticum. Other practices of “private” distribution may not take place. This diminishes the Eucharist from its proper liturgical and theological context.
  • April 1, 2020, was designated as a day for 12 hours of the Sacrament of Reconciliation throughout the archdiocese.  This will be postponed.  While private reconciliation is allowed, please consider the risk before scheduling confessions.  We will provide formational material about how to make a good examination of conscience and a meaningful act of contrition.
  • Holy Week and the Triduum are the most solemn time of our liturgical year. Public celebrations for Holy Week, Holy Thursday and Good Friday are cancelled in all of our parishes. I will celebrate both days from the Cathedral and those services will be live-streamed.  The modifications in the liturgical celebrations decreed by the Vatican will be observed.  Instructions for accessing the live-stream will be posted.  I will also offer the celebration of the Easter Vigil, as accommodated in the same Vatican decree, from the Cathedral.  That Mass will be live-streamed.
