BISHOP PAPROCKI OPENING CHURHES TO FULL CAPACITY +
Clearly, the full reopening of secular scoiety means that the time has come for the Church as well to withdraw all remaining particular dispensations from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of obligation, and I have issued a decree to that effect effective on the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary for Saturday, June 12, 2021. Those who believe they should continue to be dispensed should speak to their parish priest, who may grant a dispensation in individual cases for a just reason. Those who are ill are excused and do not need a dispensation. It is good that our churches can again be opened to full capacity. I pray that the faithful will return in great numbers and will be able to experience the full richness of our sacred rituals. May God give us this grace. Amen.
DAY OF PRAYER AND APPRECIATION FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT +
Please join in a Day of Prayer and Appreciation for Law Enforcement this Sunday, June 13th. With all the negativity and malice toward those who bravely serve and protect our families, it is important that citizens, and especially Christians, lift up those who wear the badge as local police department, sheriff's department and state police officers. Remember, law enforcement officers deserve our respect and appreciation. This is a great opportunity to let them know you believe in the importance of their work.
