Return to Mass Guidelines

Please see the latest from Bishop Boyea on the Diocese of Lansing will be handling the Coronavirus outbreak below:

The Diocese of Lansing has today published guidelines aimed at assisting parishes to safely re-open public Masses by the end of the month.

“The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the most “essential service” ever gifted to humanity,” said Jeremy Priest, Director of Worship for the Diocese of Lansing, May 13, Feast of Our Lady of Fatima.

“These new guidelines will help parishes take small but sure and certain steps in the coming days and weeks towards safely resuming public Masses in a prudent and sensible way and with a commitment to the highest standards of public health.”

Beginning on Monday May 18, parishes across the Diocese of Lansing will be able to welcome a maximum of 5% of their church’s seating capacity for daily Masses, Monday to Saturday. Parishes are encouraged to be creative and apostolic in how they allocate these places at Holy Mass.

Today’s guidelines set out the safety and hygiene expectations that will accompany that gradual return of Mass including the practicing of social distancing and rigorous sanitation measures including the wearing of face masks. Parishes are also highly encouraged to continue offering livestream Masses online.

Then from Friday May 29, public Masses are due to return to the Diocese of Lansing with the number of those able to attend Holy Mass increasing from 5% to a maximum of 25% of a church’s seating capacity.

The obligation upon all Catholics to attend Sunday Mass remains suspended across the Diocese of Lansing until, at least, July 31.

The gradual reopening of Masses comes two months after the Diocese of Lansing suspended public liturgies in an attempt to help stem the spread of the COVID-19 virus which, so far, has stricken over 47,000 people across Michigan, killing at least 4,500. May they rest in peace.

Acts of Spiritual Communion

It has long been a Catholic understanding that when circumstances prevent one from receiving Holy Communion, it is possible to make and Act of Spiritual Communion which is a source of grace. Spiritual Communion means uniting one’s self in prayer with Christ’s sacrifice and worshipping him in his Body and Blood. The most common reason for making an Act of Spiritual Communion is when a person cannot attend Mass. Acts of Spiritual Communion increase our desire to receive sacramental Communion and help us avoid sins that would make us unable to receive Holy Communion worthily.


Spiritual Communion Prayer

My Jesus, I believe that
You are present in the
Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all
things, and I desire to
receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot at
this moment receive You
sacramentally, come at
least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as
if You were already
there and unite myself
Wholly to you.
Never permit me to be
separated from You.

Bishop Earl Boyea’s Statement on the Current Sexual Abuse Crisis

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

           I am writing this to you due to the recent removal of Archbishop Theodore McCarrick from ministry and the release of the grand jury report on clergy abuse in Pennsylvania. Once again, the sins of clergy have hurt victims, scandalized the faithful, raised anger in many hearts, and brought ill-repute upon the Catholic Church. Archbishop McCarrick’s abuse of minors, his homosexual activity and his abuse of seminarians and young priests are beyond the pale. The sins of anyone who sexually abuses children is abhorrent, most especially clergy. In addition, some knew about these crimes and did nothing to address this behavior. I am as shocked as you. So, first of all, I apologize for their behavior and the behavior of those who did nothing to stop it. It is incredibly wearying and demoralizing to hear yet again about these sexual sins and crimes. Let us hold each other in prayer.

As you may know, each bishop is ultimately responsible to the Holy Father, who is the only one who can remove a bishop. Still, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops will be discussing how we bishops might attempt to hold one another accountable, given this limitation. I can never give a guarantee that there will not be other clerics who violate their promise of celibacy and abuse their positions. We are all sinners. The Lord Jesus knew what these sinful clergy did just as he knows our sinful selves as well. Beyond what we can do as human beings to address the behavior of one another, we also commend ourselves and each other to the charity and justice of our God. We offer our prayers for the healing of victims of abuse but the time has come for us bishops to do more to hold one another accountable.

Christ is our hope in all things. May God have mercy on us all.

Bishop Earl Boyea, Diocese of Lansing
