Current Directives for Liturgies in Churches
of the Archdiocese of Hartford
May 10, 2021
As of the weekend of Pentecost Sunday (May 22/23), there is an obligation once again to participate at Mass. However, since the risk of infection, though diminished, still remains, the following individuals may very legitimately decide not yet to attend church: those suffering from serious pre-existing conditions making them more susceptible to COVID-19; those who are ill or homebound or who are caregivers in close contact with someone who is; those who have tested positive for any contagious disease, including COVID-19; and those who are in quarantine due to exposure to any contagion, or who reside with someone who is quarantined.
Even though watching Mass online or on TV is not a valid substitute, livestreaming will continue as an outreach to those who are curious about our faith.
A Pastoral Letter on “the importance that full participation at Mass has for the spiritual life of all believers,” was jointly written by the Latin Bishops of Connecticut and issued on May 10th alongside the new directives.
We’ll have to do without a few other things for a little while longer too. We’ll have to go without holy water in the fonts. Although we can have an opening and closing procession, we will still have to do without an offertory procession. We’ll still have to refrain from physical contact at the sign of peace and receiving Holy Communion on the tongue. For a little while longer we will have to go without distributing the Precious Blood and having children altar servers.
