Area Catholics not obligated to attend Mass next three weeks

The Diocese of Green Bay announced Friday that while Sunday Masses will continue in parishes throughout the area, Catholics have been granted a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass through March 29.  Bishop David Ricken says, "during this time of heightened precautions, the church wants to keep people safe, healthy, and free from fear."
Sunday Mass is available through a live stream from St. Frances Xavier Cathedral in Green Bay at 9 a.m. here: 


The Green Bay Diocese covers 16 counties in Northeastern Wisconsin, including Door and Kewaunee counties.
