Decree Suspending the Public Celebration of Mass 

Masses
Per Bishop David Ricken: Effective Friday, March 20, the celebration of public Mass in the Diocese of Green Bay is suspended through mid-April. Catholics are dispensed from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass for the length of this suspension. We want to assure you all that not attending Mass during a national health emergency like this is not sinful.

The Diocese of Green Bay has received guidance from the Wisconsin Catholic Conference of Bishops and, together, have both identified that our parishes qualify as “Organizations that provide charitable and social services.” and thereby qualify as an “Essential Business” and “encouraged to remain open.”  This means that “provided that employees comply with Social Distancing Requirements, to the extent possible” our parishes  are able to carry out the “minimum necessary activities” to keep our buildings and grounds preserved, ensure security, process payroll and employee benefits or for related functions.
