Dear Brothers and Sisters.

There have been a few questions after my last email.

The first is about the dispensation from the Bishop's conference.

The dispensation from the Sunday obligation is still valid. If one is able to attend Mass during the weekdays and not on over the weekend, or if one is not able to attend Mass because of instruction from the government or the health department, the person is dispensed from the Sunday obligation.

The second is about music in church during Mass.

There will be no singing at mass, but there may be occasions in the near future where a member of the music group plays an instrument but not the organ, or a recorded music may sometimes be used.

If there are other things that need clarification, please let us know. We want to get it right for our parish.

God bless.

Fr. Evangelist
