Now that many of the pandemic restrictions have been lifted, what COVID precautions are most churches taking?

Archdiocese of Baltimore parishes follow local guidelines for masking and capacity restrictions. There are currently no restrictions for jurisdictions and no mask mandates, although parishes continue to follow safe cleaning protocols.

Many parishes now routinely livestream at least one Mass a weekend. Check individual parish websites for livestream listings and links or visit www.archbalt.org/online-mass.  The 11 a.m. Mass at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen can be livestreamed on any computer, tablet or phone and many smart TVs at https://www.youtube.com/user/cathedralofmary/videos.

Archbishop Lori will celebrate 11 a.m. Mass at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen. The broadcast can be viewed on TV at Ch. 24 (MyTV Baltimore): Comcast (24), Verizon (509), DirecTV/DISH (41).
