- 'It brings new hope.' Catholics plan for Easter Mass at Detroit's Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament
People are welcome to attend Easter Mass in person at the Cathedral this year. According to the Archdiocese of Detroit, safety protocols will be enforced, including social distancing and mask wearing.
Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron will celebrate the in-person liturgies of Holy Week and Easter at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament.
“Last year was an unprecedented time in the life of our local Church, and it was with great sadness that we could not publicly celebrate the pinnacle of our faith,” said Archbishop of Detroit Allen H. Vigneron in a press release. "The challenges we have faced this past year have also brought a multitude of graces, including a renewed love by many for the Holy Eucharist and the other sacraments."
He added, “This Easter will be filled with an even greater rejoicing now that we are able to worship in-person after being apart during this holy time last year.”
