We have resumed public weekday Mass at the Abbey Basilica, Monday through Saturday at 11am.  Sunday Masses remain closed to the public at this time.  Through the summer, confessions are heard by appointment only.

The following policies and practices are in place for attending Mass at the Abbey:

  1.  If you are ill or running a temperature, please stay at home.
  2.  Masks are required for all guests.  You are responsible for bringing your own mask.
  3.  It will be necessary to sanitize one’s hands on entering the Basilica (sanitizer is provided).
  4.  Guest seating will be in the nave only.  The choir is reserved for the monks.
  5.  Family groups may sit together.  Otherwise, seating is to be at least 6 feet apart from others.
  6.   People coming forward for Communion should observe proper distancing between themselves and others.
  7.   Before receiving Communion, people should again sanitize their hands (sanitizer is provided).
  8.   We ask people receiving Communion, out of safety for the monastic community, to receive Communion in the hand.
