STATEMENT OF THE NEW JERSEY BISHOPS
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).
