Beginning with the Sunday Masses of June 6, 2021, Archbishop Schnurr is reinstating the obligation to attend Sunday and Holy Day Mass for the faithful of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Since our guidance throughout this pandemic has been to follow the regulations of public health authorities, there will be no mask mandate for churches of the archdiocese after the statewide mandate is lifted.

As was announced last week, seating capacity in churches can be increased to full, subject only to the restrictions of local (county and city) health departments.  It remains a good practice to retain at least one section of seating for at least one Sunday Mass with socially distanced seating, and to continually calibrate the amount of such seating based on the preferences of the faithful and pastoral judgment.

Finally, please stay tuned over the coming weeks for changes to our liturgical protocols as the pandemic continues to wane. Guidelines-Worship-Together-Safely
