What services are currently available, including mass schedule?
How do I offer a mass intention?

Who are given dispensation from attending masses in-person?
The faithful are encouraged to return to participating in the Sunday Mass if their health permits. Bishop Barber will soon be issuing a Pastoral Letter on the beauty and centrality of the Eucharist in our lives. The lifting of the dispensation from the Sunday Mass Obligation will come into force on Sunday, August 15th, the Solemnity of the Assumption. The usual dispensations allowed by canon law will be explained in the bishop’s letter. See Message from Bishop Barber concerning June 15th COVID-19
