Form your faith in domestic church

Updated Jan. 13, 2021

Bishop Anthony B. Taylor announced that he was lifting the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass (in person) on Oct. 1, 2020, for those in good health. The dispensation remains in effect for those under certain conditions. For those still unable to attend Mass or take part in faith formation programs in person, many Catholic ministries are working hard to help parishioners continue to practice their faith from home.
