Massachusetts has a 70% vaccination rate against COVID 19 and it has been reported that the vaccinated are not likely to become seriously ill with the virus.

However, out of an abundance of caution, the Archdiocese of Boston is requiring all people attending Mass to wear face masks from now until January 17, 2022. Children under the age of five are not required to wear masks and children under the age of two should not wear masks. For medical reasons some are advised not to wear masks. The clergy and staff, (others), will NOT be policing or enforcing this policy. Each person is expected to respond accordingly. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
