October 5th, 2020
As reported cases of Covid-19 have continued to rise in our Diocese the past weeks, Bishop Ricken has announced that after consultation with diocesan leadership and medical professionals, he has decided to dispense the Catholic faithful in the Diocese of Green Bay from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays for a second time, in order to help in preventing the community spread of this disease.
The Diocese continues to measure and monitor the data received from the various reporting entities and health care experts. We are closely monitoring activities in each county as parishes, schools, religious education, youth ministry and adult faith formation programs experience varying degrees of exposure.
This is NOT a closure of public Masses on Sundays or weekdays. We will continue to celebrate the Mass publicly every Sunday at all of our parishes for those who are able to attend and willing to strictly follow the proper health protocols.
