Letter from Archbishop Hebda Regarding New Executive Order Allowing Larger Faith-based Gatherings

From Archbishop Bernard Hebda

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

I wish to let you know of an important breakthrough in our state that will allow for greater worship opportunities for all Minnesotans as we together address the Covid-19 pandemic. On Tuesday, Governor Walz will issue a new executive order that allows faith communities to accommodate up to 250 people for worship services, provided precautions are taken to protect public health. We welcome that development. We know that Governor Walz and his administration are trusting that when faith communities gather, they will do so consistent with public health guidance. Our commitment as Catholics to the common good makes it natural for us to pledge to be good citizens when we gather for worship.

As you know, the Catholic bishops of Minnesota believe that the previous limitation on faith-based gatherings to ten people unreasonably burdened the Church’s ability to fully meet the sacramental needs of our faithful. Because of our Catholic beliefs about the centrality of the Eucharist to our lives, we were prepared to move ahead and allow larger Masses even without support from public officials. As allowances were made for other, less essential activities, it seemed to many that the life of faith was receiving unequal treatment. The new executive order removes that unreasonable burden on the Church and allows us to bring the Eucharist, the food of everlasting life, to our community.

Read the full letter to the faithful here.


The dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass continues. The faithful are asked to find a Mass on TV, the radio or online and make a Spiritual Communion. Where that is not an option, it would be appropriate to pray the Liturgy of the Hours or the Rosary.

See further information on the dispensation in the letter from Archbishop Hebda. (Spanish version here.)

Act of Spiritual Communion

  • 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.Amen.©2012 EWTN. Used with permission.For more Catholic prayers and additional resources, visit the EWTN website.

Parishes Need Your Continued Support

Parishes are committed to serving you in the midst of this pandemic. Many are allocating resources to record or live stream Mass, deliver faith formation resources electronically, and continue to serve the vulnerable in our communities – all while supporting staff and operational needs. Please continue your financial support of your parish at this critical time. Visit your parish’s website to learn how to give.

Minnesota Catholic Relief Fund

If you are able to give beyond your parish, please consider donating to the Minnesota Catholic Relief Fund (MCRF), an emergency relief fund designed to contribute to operational stability for Catholic parishes and schools during the COVID‑19 pandemic. Give here.

Ways to Help Prevent the Spread of Illness

Ensuring cleanliness to prevent the spread, parishes follow the policies of the Archdiocese, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and the CDC.

What Parishes Do

Parishes that return to the celebration of public Mass during this pandemic must follow these directives for returning to public Mass.

Some of these directives for parishes and the faithful include:

  • Stay home if you feel sick or have flu-like symptoms.
  • Suspend the Sign of Peace or offer it without touching.
  • Suspend Communion from the Chalice.
  • Refrain from hand-holding during the Our Father.
  • Empty holy water fonts.
  • Place anti-bacterial hand sanitizer where Mass attendees can access it.

Please pray for those affected by these serious viruses, that they may receive the strength and care needed to assist them in their recovery.

What You Can Do at Home

The CDC recommends everyday preventative actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses such as COVID-19, flu and the common cold:

  1. Stay home when you are sick.
  2. Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds before eating or use a 60%+ alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Cover your cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow.
  4. Clean and disinfect frequently-touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
