Diocese of Jefferson City COVID-19 Adjustments

The Diocese of Jefferson City is making adjustments for congregations related to the coronavirus.

According to the Most Reverend Shawn McKnight, bishop for the diocese, there will be no offertory procession, only the bread will be offered during communion and communion will not be distributed by clergy over 60 at the recommendation of the Missouri Department of Health.

McKnight also granted a dispensation for anyone over 60 that relieves them from their faith-bound requirement to attend mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation.
