Bishop Robert P. Deeley is temporarily suspending all public daily and Sunday Masses and religious services throughout the Diocese of Portland (covering the entire state of Maine), effective immediately. The bishop is also issuing a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass for Maine Catholics during this time. Fr Rob will still be celebrating daily Mass privately, and parishioners can call the office to schedule Mass intentions as usual, which he will pray for. Parishioners are encouraged to view online Masses and pray the usual Liturgy Prayers and responses of the faithful, as the priest says Mass online, with the intention of praying for the end of this health crisis.
