SAINT ELIZABETH CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY PARISH
As the body of Christ, we are here to learn and experience a life-transforming relationship with Jesus Christ.
Through that relationship and our relationship with each other, we hope to find peace with God, love for one another, purpose in living and joy in life.
Bishop Coerver reinstates Sunday Mass Obligation starting April 2 and 3, 2022
In the course of the two years, we have learned a lot about the Coronavirus and what does and does not contribute to its spread. And we have reached a point where we better understand precautions that are helpful and how we can keep one another and ourselves safe.
Therefore, as our Lenten journey progresses, I think it appropriate that we prepare to gather again as communities of faith and celebrate the most sacred days of the Church Year as we approach Holy Week and our joyful celebration of Easter.
And so, I am reinstating the obligation to participate in person at the celebration of the Eucharist, to attend Mass, on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation beginning the first weekend of April — April 2 and 3.
Of course, if you are not feeling well – or have a medical condition that makes it dangerous for you to return to church and be physically present — by Church law, the obligation does not bind you.
