As many of you may have heard by now, the dispensation from the Sunday Mass has been extended until November 23. 

A dispensation from Mass is used for those whose health would be compromised were they to attend.

What does this mean for us Catholics? Are we exempt from any form of structured prayer? Are we given a free pass to "skip" Sunday Mass? Can we use Sunday to catch up on our groceries / errands / family parties? 

The short answer - no. 

Because the dispensation is put in place for those with health concerns, those not struggling are strongly encouraged to return to Mass and the grace received through the Eucharist. 

It is time for us to return to the essentials - the Sacraments. 

As Catholics, we are asked - by God Himself - to keep Holy the Sabbath. This means different things to different people, but generally it becomes a day of rest, prayer, and time with your family.

This may seem "easy" when we have the obligation of Mass. If we have chosen to not attend Mass due to our health, we are still to use Sundays as a day for our family and a day of prayer. The resources below are given to you as an invitation to dig deeper with your Sundays and receive God's grace.
