The five Indiana Bishops released the following statement on Monday, August 3:
"While commending our pastors and parish life coordinators who have gone to great lengths to assure safe worship spaces in our churches, due to the increase in the COVID-19 cases in our state, the Indiana bishops have decided to extend the dispensation from the obligation of Sunday Mass attendance beyond August 15 until November 1, 2020, unless further developments determine otherwise.
While you are not required to attend Holy Mass each Sunday for the time being, please remember to honor the Sabbath day. A good way to do this is by praying along with a live streamed Mass or the Scripture readings for that day. We look forward to gathering as a community in the church again, but until then, know of our daily prayers for you.
