Health & Safety PROTOCALS – updated April 13, 2023

The most recent General Decree from the Diocese of Sault Ste Marie, on public health and safety measures was issued on October 27, 2022, from Bishop Thomas Dowd’s office.

One of the changes is in regards to the obligation to participate in the Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of obligations. The general dispensation from this obligation has been repealed. The exception is in cases where the pastor of the parish has dispensed individual parishioners from this obligation because it is recommended they not attend group events, due to an underlying state of health (such as illness or age).

The full document can be found on the Diocese of Sault Ste. Marie website, under the ordinances tab:

Stay safe!
