Update to the protocols for holding public Mass in the Archdiocese of St. Louis

The Archdiocese of St. Louis has announced that the mask mandate now only applies to all parish faithful who have not received a vaccination against the COVID-19 virus. Social-distancing measures are to be determined by the parish pastor.

In our parish all social-distancing measures will be suspended. The ropes have been removed and you may sit wherever you like. Archbishop Rozanski has left the dispensation for Sunday Mass in place at this time, but will be re-evaluating the need for the dispensation in the coming weeks.


All updates and resources from the Archdiocese of St. Louis regarding COVID-19, including stories from the St. Louis Review, can be found at Please direct questions to


What to do if you cannot go to Confession or Holy Communion due to COVID-19

If you have to self-isolate or are quarantined due to COVID-19, it is unlikely that you will be able to receive the sacraments as normal.

In these circumstances, there are devotions through which you can receive absolution for your sins, (under certain conditions), and the consolation of Eucharistic grace.

These devotions are officially encouraged by the Church and have been practiced by saints.
