End of the suspension of the Sunday Obligation
In 2020, at the beginning of the pandemic, Archbishop Lépine issued a dispensation from the Sunday obligation to attend Mass, as churches were closed for liturgical gatherings. When our places of worship reopened some months later, Archbishop Lépine maintained this dispensation pending further notice, in consideration of the persistently high risks involved and in response to the widespread fear of contracting the virus in a public place. Now that the public health state of emergency has been lifted in Quebec, and in order to remove all doubt in the conscience of the faithful, please be advised that this dispensation is now cancelled.
