Dispensation extended through January 4, 2020

Bishop Walkowiak has extended through January 4, 2020 the dispensation for all Catholics within the territory of the Diocese of Grand Rapids from their obligation of attending Sunday Mass.
“The dispensation is granted broadly to ensure that anyone who needs to stay home to protect the common good can do so confidently, in good conscience. But those who are truly able to attend Mass should begin to return, remembering that we are transformed by being joined to Christ in the Eucharist.”
