Very Important:

This information is being provided as a way of helping all to more easily ascertain the status of the Restoration of the Mass in US Dioceses. 

Understand that, as the Mass returns to our churches, attendance will need to be restricted to existing parishioners only due to limited congregation size. 

Our Bishops are relying on the faithful to respect this limitation. 

DO NOT travel outside your existing Diocese or Parish.
