Am I required to attend Mass?
Read Archbishop Hartmayer’s Letter on the updates to Dispensation beginning May 23, 2021 (Pentecost Sunday) for the Archdiocese of Atlanta HERE. Masses can be viewed online at
While the general dispensation is removed, there are specific persons for whom the dispensation will, for the time being, still be applicable, as well as persons for whom there is no obligation in the first place according to the norms of canon law. One does not have an obligation to attend Mass on Sunday or a holy day of obligation in the following circumstances:

  1. You are ill or you have a health condition that 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). Please use the dispensation and do not attend Mass.
  2. You are experiencing flu-like symptoms.
  3. You have been exposed to someone who has tested positive or you have reason to think you might be asymptomatic of a contagious illness.
  4. You care for the sick, homebound, or infirm.
  5. You are pregnant.
  6. You are 65 years of age or older (per the CDC’s recommendation of high-risk individuals).
  7. You cannot attend Mass through no fault of your own (e.g., no Mass is offered, you are infirm, your ride did not show up, the church was at capacity).
  8. You have significant fear or anxiety of becoming ill by being at Mass.

For questions about how these might apply to you, please contact your pastor. These categories will be reviewed in due course and revised as needed.

Persons legitimately dispensed from the obligation to attend Mass are still to observe the Lord’s Day by participating in a broadcast of the Sunday Mass or by spending time in prayer or meditating on Scripture, either individually or as a family.

The church maintains a high level of cleanliness. The Maintenance staff works to clean and sanitize the church. This includes all surface areas and restrooms. When required, classrooms and meeting rooms are sanitized. The Social Hall is cleaned and sanitized when needed. Remember, if you choose to attend Mass, there is always risk of exposure to illness.

  • Water fountains have been updated to include touchless water bottle fillers for your safety and convince.
  • Hand sanitizing stations are in the foyer. Please observe proper hand hygiene and sanitizing. (at all times)
