We are livestreaming daily Mass and the 11 a.m. Sunday Mass on our Facebook page, @comonewman. The livestream will begin 15 minutes prior to the Mass time, and the video will be available to view at the same link (below) after the Mass is over. You can view the livestream even if you do not have access to Facebook.
Please note that communion services are not livestreamed. There will be a communion service Tuesday, April 20.
Instructions to Attend Public Mass
The St. Thomas More Newman Center has created the following instructions to attend public Mass in accordance with requirements set by the Diocese of Jefferson City, CDC guidelines and guidance from the local health department. These instructions have been created to keep everyone safe and healthy and to allow as many of our parishioners to celebrate Mass within the requirements. These instructions will be under evaluation and are subject to change throughout the month.
Those who are symptomatic or who have been exposed to another with the virus within 14 days are not permitted to enter the church, in accordance with national, state, and local health directives. Those who are at risk because of an underlying health issue or who are over 60 are strongly encouraged, for their health, to avoid the risk of attending public Mass.
We will continue to livestream the 11 a.m. Sunday Mass and the Noon Daily Mass on our Facebook page.
Although public Masses are resuming, please note that Bishop McKnight has dispensed the obligation to attend Sunday Mass for all the faithful in the diocese until further notice provided that they do one of the following:
- Prayerfully participate in the Sunday or holy day of obligation Mass livestreamed from their parish church or chapel, the Cathedral, the Vatican, or of any Mass of the day celebrated in communion with the Roman Catholic Church.
- Prayerfully read and meditate on the readings of the Mass for the Sunday or holy days of obligation, and recite the Rosary or Divine Mercy Chaplet.
