COVID-19: Updates for St. Francis

Bishop Kemme has informed the Diocese of Wichita that all Mass restrictions related to the pandemic will cease, except for the reception of the Precious Blood, effective July 1, 2021.

He writes, "After consultation with the Presbyteral Council and the Diocesan Pastoral Council, I wish to inform you now that the current guidelines and restrictions for the Diocese of Wichita, concerning the pandemic will cease, with the sole exception of the distribution of Holy Communion under both forms, effective July 1, 2021.

"It is evident that much of life has returned to 'normal.' I am therefore confident that we can completely return to the celebration of the Mass and other liturgical prayers as we were accustomed to before the pandemic began."
