Return to Mass at Guardian Angels

Together, we will take steps to make attending Mass as safe as possible.

The dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass remains in effect throughout the pandemic.

Livestream will continue throughout the pandemic on Saturdays at 4:30pm without the congregation. Our top priority will continue to be offering a meaningful experience to those participating from home.

We offer daily Mass Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8:30am with a limit of 20 attendees, please use our SignUp link on this page to attend.

Beginning June 21, 2020 we will offer in-person Sunday Mass at 10:00am with a limit of 75 attendees.  Please use the SignUp link on this page to attend.  Please work together with us by reading the procedures before attending.
