Reinstating the General Obligation to Attend Mass
At this time, due to the observance of public safety protocols and the increase in the availability of vaccines, we have begun a return to some sense of normalcy in various sectors of our society.
Therefore, we the Catholic Bishops of New Jersey, are lifting the dispensation of the Sunday and Holy Days Mass obligation beginning on Saturday, June 5, 2021, and Sunday, June 6, 2021, Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. We welcome the Christian faithful to return to the regular participation in the Sunday Eucharist, the source and summit of our Catholic faith (cf. Code of Canon Law canon 1247 and Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 2180).
This obligation does not apply to those who are ill; those who have reason to believe that they were recently exposed to the coronavirus or another serious or contagious illness; those who are confined to their home, a hospital, or nursing facility; or those with serious underlying health conditions. One should consult the local pastor if questions arise about the obligation to attend Mass (canon 87).
Finally, safety protocols (such as wearing masks, social distancing, etc.) and liturgical directives in each New Jersey Diocese remains in place until modified or revoked by the respective Diocesan Bishop.
Given on May 20, 2021, the memorial of St. Bernardine of Siena.
Most Reverend David M. O’Connell, C.M.
Bishop, Diocese of Trenton
PLEASE NOTE: FATHER DAN IS NOT TEXTING PEOPLE ASKING THEM TO REPLY
We received a message from someone who received a text message from a scammer claiming to be Father Dan Hesko. THIS IS NOT A TEXT COMING FROM FATHER DAN. It is a scam. This has happened before and once you engage conversation the scammer will ask you to purchase gift cards and send the gift card number to them through the text. DO NOT DO THAT! If you ever receive a message and are unsure that it has come from Father Dan Hesko or St. Catherine's Church, PLEASE take the safe route and contact the church directly at 732-787-1318 or message us.
