Listed are revised Protocols for all parishes in the Diocese of El Paso

Masks are strongly encouraged while attending Mass or any parish activities.

Those who serve in parish ministries must be fully vaccinated prior to undertaking these ministries for their own safety and that of those with whom they come into contact. This includes, altar servers, and people who work in the kitchen and all those who serve as volunteers.

Priests and all Eucharistic continue to wear masks when distributing communion. They should sanitize their hands in an unobtrusive way before and after distributing Holy Communion. Communion will continue to be received on the hand only.


As of August 1, 2021 – The dispensation from the Obligation to Attend Mass on Sunday will be lifted. Catholics who have reached the age of reason will once again be obliged to be present at Mass on Saturday evening or Sunday, if they are not otherwise impeded by a grave or contagious illness or serious disabilities.
