Resumption of Public Liturgies

Parishes in the Terre Haute Deanery have now resumed public celebration of Mass and Sacramental rites following guidelines and protocols issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Indiana Department of Health, and the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. However, most parishes have adjusted their Mass schedules and implemented local protocols to protect the health and safety of parishioners and guests. Therefore, please consult your parish’s bulletin and/or website for more information.

Even though public liturgies have resumed, the five Catholic bishops of Indiana have extended the dispensation for the obligation to attend the public celebration of Mass on Sundays to all the faithful until further notice. Therefore, if you are ill, not comfortable attending Mass yet, or have an underlying at-risk health condition, please stay home and watch Mass online.

Special Indulgences Announced

On March 20, the Apostolic Penitentiary announced the gift of special Indulgences granted to the faithful suffering from COVID-19 disease, as well as to health care workers, family members and all those who in any capacity, including through prayer, care for them.

A Time for Prayer

During these difficult times, please take a few minutes each day to offer this prayer for healing from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
