Persons are excused from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays or Holy Days under the following circumstances:
- You have reason to believe your health would be significantly compromised if you were to contract a communicable illness (i.e., you have underlying conditions or are in a high-risk category).
- You exhibit flu-like symptoms.
- You have good reason to think you might be asymptomatic of a contagious illness (e.g., you were in recent contact with someone who tested positive for a contagious illness such as COVID or influenza).
- You care for the sick, homebound, or infirmed.
- You are pregnant or you are 65 years of age or older (per the CDC’s recommendation for high-risk individuals).
- You cannot attend Mass through no fault of your own (e.g., no Mass is offered; you are infirm; or, while wanting to go, you are prevented for some reason you cannot control, such as your ride did not show up).
- You have significant fear or anxiety of becoming ill by being at Mass.
If situations 1 through 3 apply to you, prudent concern for your neighbor should lead you to stay home.
If you fall within situations 4-7, please exercise good judgment, consider the common good, and know you would not be held to the obligation of attending Mass.
For further questions about the application of any of these situations, please contact the St. Raphael office.
*Those who come to worship may choose to wear a mask or may choose to not wear a mask. If you need a mask, free masks are available. If you are not feeling well, please stay home for your own safety and the safety of others.
