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

Archbishop Mitchell Rozanski has mandated that masks are required for entry into archdiocesan parishes and must be worn
during the entirety of the Mass except at the moment of receiving Holy Communion.


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.
