Diocese of Scranton announces date for restoring Sunday Mass Obligation >>

Resumption of Public Masses

The Diocese of Scranton issued revised guidelines on effective June 28 concerning the celebration of public Masses in its 11 counties. After a thorough review of the guidelines, the Cathedral has made updates, as necessary, to its COVID-19 procedures. 


To maintain the health and safety of our parishioners, visitors, and staff, the Cathedral continues to maintain its rigorous cleaning and sanitization protocols adopted last year.

When attending Mass or visiting the Cathedral, please be aware of the following:


  • Regardless of vaccination status, individuals strongly encouraged, but not mandated, to wear masks while in the Cathedral. 


  • Pews are no longer marked for physical distancing. In addition, the physical distancing floor medallions have been removed. 


  • The dispensation to attend Mass continues. You are encouraged to watch the Mass from the safety of your home, especially if you are in an increased age group (60+), have an illness which increases your risk, or have symptoms of the virus.
