Since receiving news that allows houses of worship to open for services, we have been working on plans to comply and implement both the State and Archdiocesan requirements. We will provide updates on the progress of our plan as it develops. We do not anticipate having a public Mass in our churches the weekend’s of May 24 or May 31. For the benefit of Holy Family and St. Irene parishioners, we will continue to provide a weekly streamed Mass on the Concord-Carlisle Catholic Community YouTube Channel.
Please keep in mind that, even with the reopening of churches, the dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation continues for the foreseeable future. Cardinal Seán strongly encourages people in vulnerable populations – especially the elderly and those with complicating physical conditions – to continue to watch Mass from their homes via their parish’s social media or on CatholicTV.
Thank you for your continued ‘patience and cooperation’ as we move forward with our re-opening plans that will strive to be sensitive to the health and well being of our community.
