Health Precautions for the Celebration of Mass from Bishop Banbera's Office

Diocese of Scranton

  • The faithful are strongly encouraged at this time to receive the Body of Christ (via the Sacred Host) in the hand, but the right of each individual to receive on the tongue, as guaranteed by the universal law of the Church, remains in place and is to be respected. This request is made in order to curtail the spread of germs to the communicant, the minister of Holy Communion, and other communicants.
  • The faithful should refrain from the use of holy water upon entering and exiting our churches. Out of an abundance of caution, pastors should remove holy water from fonts in effort to reduce the possible transmission of the virus.
  • Elderly parishioners who are not sick but are concerned about being in crowded spaces are not bound by the Sunday Mass obligation.
  • The distribution of the Precious Blood (via the Chalice) is temporarily suspended.
  • The Sign of Peace will now be exchanged without physical contact.
  • Parishioners are also reminded that if they are sick, especially with flu-like symptoms, they should stay home for their own well-being and that of others. If parishioners are sick or suspect they are sick with a contagious illness, they are not bound by the Sunday Mass obligation.
  • Bishop Bambera encourages vigilance and discretion by our faithful to use common sense and good hygiene.

"We pray for all the sick, in particular those suffering from the flu or from the coronavirus. We pray for researchers trying to find a treatment, and we pray for those caring for the sick throughout the world."
