Welcome Home

In the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, public Masses resumed on Monday May 25. 

The Catholic faithful who reside in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and all other Catholics in the archdiocese continue to be dispensed from the obligation of attending Sunday Mass. Those who are at risk or fearful that they or their family might become sick are encouraged to stay home and join the Church by viewing live-streamed Masses.

For more details about the return to Mass, read the Guidelines for the Resumption of Public Worship from the Office for Divine Worship and Sacraments. 

Read Archbishop Schnurr’s Letter to the Faithful about the return to Public Mass, found here.
