Because of the ongoing pandemic, the gathering is limited in size and registration is required. We have put many precautions in place to make sure the celebration is safe and comfortable. This is not business as usual! The following are important important instructions for those who wish to take part in Mass. Please read these instructions before registering for Mass.

  • Registration is required to attend the Mass, and each person will be checked in as they arrive. This is to make sure the Masses are not overcrowded. Drop-ins will be accommodated whenever possible.
  • Masks/face coverings must be worn throughout the Mass except when receiving Holy Communion.  For your safety and that of others, face masks are not optional.
  • On arriving at the Cathedral, you will be greeted by staff who will check you in and show you your place for the Mass. You will not be able to choose your own place to sit. However, household groups will remain together. Please be patient and understanding with our volunteers as they seat you. For your safety and that of others, you are asked to remain in your seat once you have been seated and not to move about the Cathedral.

You will notice a number of changes to the Mass. All these changes are designed to ensure our safety as we gather together for Mass:

  • The Sign of Peace will not be shared, and Communion will not be offered from the cup.
  • Communion will be given only in the hand, not on the tongue.

Please remember that there is no obligation to attend Sunday Mass at this time. Anyone who is experiencing any symptoms whatsoever, such as fever, cough, sore throat, muscle aches, MUST remain at home out of consideration for the health and well being of others.
