Liturgical Directives from Cardinal Sean O’Malley for Flu Prevention

This year’s influenza virus is the most widespread outbreak since public health authorities began keeping track more than a dozen years ago. To help protect the health of all, the Cardinal directs the following for the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy and for flu prevention:

  • The distribution of the Precious Blood is suspended.
  • The exchange of the Sign of Peace should be offered without any physical contact.
  • Please remember that those who are ill or suspect that they may be ill with a contagious illness are not bound by the Sunday Mass obligation.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Parish Office.
