I’m concerned that my medical condition makes me particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus. Should I refrain from attending Mass?


Archbishop Vigneron has extended the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation for all the faithful in the Archdiocese of Detroit, as well as for all travelers during their time within the territory of the Archdiocese of Detroit, until Monday, November 23, 2020.

While the dispensation from the grave obligation to attend Sunday Mass is in effect, all baptized Catholics are reminded of the grave necessity they have to keep holy the Lord’s Day.

Anyone who is ill, has a temperature, cough, etc., should definitely stay home as an act of love to the whole community.
