Reinstating Obligation to Attend Sunday Mass

Following much careful consideration, the dispensation for Sunday Mass obligation has been lifted and beginning the weekend of September 19th-20th all Catholics will once again gather as a community of faith on Sundays.  The lifting of the dispensation was announced in a decree issued by Bishop David Ricken on Monday, September 7th. Click here to read Bishop's decree in entirety.

With this news, please note there are still occasions when the obligation to attend Sunday Mass does not apply:

  • If individual Catholics struggle with serious health concerns or are physically or morally prevented from worshiping at Mass for a grave reason
  • If individuals are frail due to illness or age or, in their well informed consciences believe that going into public places --including Sunday worship at Mass --would place their health or the health of their loved ones in serious jeopardy
  • If individuals are sick, or have been in contact with someone who has been sick

The faithful who are unable to attend Mass are urged to make holy the Lord's Day and to pray, read the Scriptures, watch a broadcast, or live-streamed Mass and take part in acts of charity.

The diocese also issued guidelines for public Masses at http://www.gbdioc.org/sundayobligationreinstatement.  These guidelines make clear that face masks are still required, and that, while restrictions will be lifted on the percentage of people at Mass, the standards of social distancing will still be upheld.

The obligation to attend Mass for Catholics reflects our faith in Jesus Christ, the blessing of the Holy Eucharist and an acknowledgement of His great love for us.

Prayer for a Spiritual Canopy

(This is said in the morning when we start our day.)
Dear Lord Jesus, please forgive me for all the times I have not submitted to your will in
my life. Please forgive me for all my sinful actions, making agreements with the enemy,
and for believing the devil’s lies. I now submit to you as my Lord, dear Jesus. Now I
break every agreement that I have made with the enemy.
Lord Jesus, please send an assignment of angels to remove and bind to the abyss all
demons and their devices that had access to me because I believed their lies. I now ask
you to establish a hedge of protection around me, over me and under me, and seal it with
your blood, Lord Jesus Christ.
I now choose to put on the full armor of God and ask that you cleanse me and seal me,
body, mind, soul and spirit, with your blood, Lord Jesus Christ. Please have your angelic
army bind up and remove all demons, their devices, and all their power from within this
protective hedge and have them sent to the abyss.
Please have your angels destroy all demonic, occult or witchcraft assignments directed
against me. Please have your angels stand guard over me and protect me from all attacks
of the enemy. I thank you for establishing an impenetrable shield of protection around
me, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Prayer for Protection

(This cleansing prayer is said at night as we end our day.)
Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for your wonderful ministry of healing and deliverance.
Thank you for the healings that I have experienced today. I realize that the sickness of
evil is more than my humanity can bear, so I ask you to cleanse me of any sadness,
negative thinking, or despair that I may have picked up while interceding for others.
If I have been tempted to anger, impatience or lust, cleanse me of those temptations and
replace them with your love, joy and peace. If any evil spirits have attached themselves to
or oppressed me in any way, I command you, spirits of earth, fire, water, the netherworld,
or the evil forces of nature, to depart now and go straight to Jesus Christ, for Him to deal
with you as He wills.
Come Holy Spirit, renew me, fill me with your love, peace, and Joy. Strengthen me
where I feel weak, clothe me with your light. Fill me with your life. Lord Jesus, please
send your Holy Angels to minister to me and protect me from all forms of sickness, harm,
and accidents. I thank you and praise you my Lord, God, and King. Amen
