Parish News

Persons are excused from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays or Holy Days under the following circumstances:

  1. 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).
  2. You exhibit flu-like symptoms.
  3. 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).
  4. You care for the sick, homebound, or infirmed.
  5. You are pregnant or you are 65 years of age or older (per the CDC’s recommendation for high-risk individuals).
  6. 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).
  7. 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.

News from the Diocese of Duluth

An action alert from the Minnesota Catholic Conference on the PRO Act

Urge your Senator to resist the throwaway culture and vote NO on the protect reproductive options act (S.F. 1 McEwen). It has already passed the MN House, and is heading to the Senate soon!

This bill goes farther than just "codifying Roe," and instead works to enshrine into law an abortion regime that disregards prenatal human life, even the life of a pre-born child whose heart is beating, who can feel pain, and who is viable outside the womb.

Opportunities for a positive vision of the good 

Inside the Capitol 

The 2023 legislative session will be filled with challenges and opportunities. Governor Walz and DFL legislative majority leaders promised to use their historic “trifecta” to, at the outset, make our state’s abortion regime even more permissive and legalize recreational marijuana. These policy challenges present a tremendous opportunity for Minnesota Catholics to, as Pope Francis has said, “meddle in politics” by proposing a positive vision: the ability to choose what we ought, not the license to choose what we want.
