The Archbishop has given a dispensation for the Sunday obligation.  “If the faithful decide that congregating for Sunday Mass would constitute a risk to themselves or others, they have the freedom not to attend. Masses, however, will continue to be celebrated in our parishes as regularly scheduled at this time.”  (en Espanol)
