Scottish bishops postpone reinstating the obligation of Sunday Mass
The Scottish Catholic Bishops’ Conference made the announcement today (December 23, 2022).
âAs Advent began, the Bishops of Scotland looked forward to welcoming the faithful back to Mass and foresaw that the reestablishment of Sunday obligation might be possible as we begin the New Year. Unfortunately, the situation has seriously worsened. and the reinstatement of the obligation will be postponed until a more favorable time. For us Sunday is always a holy day and we invite those who cannot be with us in person to continue to join us in prayer and spiritual communion either through family prayers or through Mass celebrations in line.
We ask everyone to continue to pray for an early end to the pandemic and for the good health of you and your loved ones in 2022. We also pray for all those who have passed away in 2021 and those who are grieving. May Our Lady of the Health of the Sick pray for us and may Saints AndrÃ© and Marguerite protect us. ”
