Cardinal Sean O’Malley Calls On Massachusetts Catholics To Return To In-Person Sunday Mass

June 10, 2021

Come back to in-person Sunday Mass, the Boston archdiocese now says.

Cardinal Sean O’Malley, the archbishop of Boston, has called on faithful Catholics to return to in-person Sunday Mass starting with the weekend of June 19-20.

“In this year of Saint Joseph, who was always a faithful observer of the sabbath, we chose Father’s Day as an appropriate day to encourage all of our people, and especially our families, to return to the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist,” O’Malley said in his letter to parishioners, according to The Associated Press.

The duty to attend Sunday Mass comes with exceptions for the homebound and the ill, according to the report.

The Church’s requirement to attend Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation has not been in effect since March 2020 because of the coronavirus emergency.
