Mass Times (COVID-19)
“It would be easier for the world to survive without the sun than to do without Holy Mass.”
- Saint Padre Pio
Mass Dispensation Ends May 22
On Wednesday, April 28 Archbishop Hartmayer announced his decision to remove the COVID-19 dispensation from attending Mass in person stating the following:
“You cannot bring the Eucharist to your flock virtually -- not the way Jesus intended. Now that vaccines are available to any Georgian older than 16, I believe it is time to begin to bring more people physically back to church.
Pentecost is the birthday of the church and a time when we should let the Holy Spirit guide our path. It is an appropriate time to take our next step forward to full reopening of our churches.
On May 22, prior to the celebration of the Vigil of Pentecost, the general dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass will expire in the Archdiocese of Atlanta.”
