COVID-19 resources

We are in the midst of a global pandemic as COVID-19 continues to spread. During this time, our "normal" work lives, social lives, and spiritual lives have been disrupted as offices close, public gatherings are restricted, and Masses are suspended. But do not fret—there is light through the darkness, and there will be a return to normalcy in the coming months. Until then, we have created this page to serve as a resource to keep you updated about COVID-19 information, including the guidelines set by each Missouri diocese and information from state and federal sources. We encourage you to return here to find information on what you can do to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and how to keep yourself and your family healthy.

Diocesan News

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all four Missouri bishops, along with many of their brother bishops from around the globe, have suspended Mass and other public events for the next few weeks. 

As we pause from in-person community gathering, we turn to new ways of spiritual congregation. While we cannot attend Mass at our local parishes during this time, thanks to modern technology we can attend Mass virtually. Here is a link to daily Mass from Bishop Barron's chapel. We encourage you to join him at 7:15 each morning! To keep up with what your diocese has announced regarding Masses and gatherings, please visit your Missouri diocesan website.
