Mass Schedule / Televised Schedule

Welcome Back To Mass!

Cardinal Tobin and the Catholic Bishops of New Jersey have lifted the dispensation of the Sunday and Holy Days Mass obligation (effective June 5, 2021).

Effective May 28, 2021 Masks will no longer be required for fully vaccinated persons. If not fully vaccinated, persons are strongly encouraged to follow CDC guidance and wear a face mask in public settings. People will no longer be required to socially distance indoors or outdoors, (May 28), although unvaccinated persons should continue to maintain a safe distance from others.

Effective June 28 all indoor gathering limits were lifted.

Although these directives represent a reduction of pandemic restrictions, the local pastors/administrators/chaplains can impose stricter regulations as needed. These may include wearing masks, social distancing, and signing in for Mass or activities. For further information, please visit https://www.rcan.org/covid19.
