When does Public Mass resume?

The specific details of when public Mass will resume and how it will be celebrated are still being determined, but the return will occur through a three-phase gradual process. Each phase will be rolled out with specific dates and directives to follow determined by Archdiocesan leaders.

We are now on:

Currently in the Archdiocese of Newark, assemblies of 50% capacity are permitted in churches; however, six feet of social distancing between households must be maintained. Therefore, our church, having a seating capacity of more than 400, can conveniently seat 200 congregants. However, we may need to limit our attendance to each Mass/celebration to 150 participants, to be on the safer side.

In this phase, masks, social distancing, and sanitizing between liturgies continue to be required. If concelebration is practiced, concelebrants should wear masks and observe social distancing both when seated and standing. The sign of peace, without physical contact, is permitted, or it may be omitted. Our Masses and liturgies of Holy Week will take place indoors. Please continue to pay attention and observe our Archdiocesan and State directives​.

Phase 1
Churches will first be opened for personal prayer only. Individuals and families can come to church for quiet prayer, and the Sacrament of Reconciliation may be celebrated if social distancing can be maintained and masks are worn. THERE WILL BE NO MASSES.
Phase 2
Following on Phase 1, churches will be permitted to celebrate public weekday Masses and funerals with very specific restrictions, such as the strict practice of social distancing, use of masks and limited number of people present. To consult the guidelines of the Archdiocese, click here
Phase 3
Following Phase 1 and 2, churches will be permitted to celebrate Sunday Mass publicly with the obligatory practice of social distancing, use of masks and limited number of people present. All other sacraments will resume according to the directives during Phase 3.
