          A Message From The Bishop  LET US PRAY:  We need you to pray with us as we turn to Mary in our need.

ROMAN CATHOLIC  DIOCESE OF PUEBLO  COLORADO                 What to Expect When We Return to Public Masses    


On April 27, 2020, Governor Polis released an Executive Order on “Safer at Home” which gives a tentative timeline for limited openings of limited categories of businesses. As of yet, there is no schedule

on the reopening of the churches for Mass, or what regulations may have to be observed for the safety of all and continued preservation of the healthcare system. Once we are able to gather for Mass again,

it is important that we all understand that it will involve safety precautions that we are not used to. We will all need to adapt. We don’t know all the details, but we will all need to keep an open mind and charitable heart.


After consulting with our priests and parish representatives, we are beginning to understand some principles that will come into play when returning to public Mass.


1.  Social distancing will remain in place for some time to come. The congregation will most likely need to adhere to the six feet separation restriction. Masks may be required to prevent the spread of germs.

The use of the pews will have limitations and you may not be able to sit in your usual spot. If you have symptoms of illness, you should stay home.

2.  Attendance at any one Mass, whenever re-opened will be limited. Restrictions will remain in place for large gatherings. Pastors are working with us on fair and equitable ways to reopen attendance.

Your parish may contact you regarding which Mass times are open to you. Please ensure your parish has your contact information. Additionally, you may not be able to attend Mass every Sunday. In these circumstances,

it is not a sin to miss Mass. Livestream Masses will continue. (see #4)

3.  Liturgical changes will remain in effect until further notice. In order to prevent the spread of germs, we can expect to see similar protocols to those we began in March. For example, we may receive the

Eucharist under one species and will likely have to refrain from use of holy water fonts or other points of contact.

4.  General dispensation from the Sunday obligation remains. These extraordinary times merit the use of this Apostolic power from our Bishop. It is not a sin to miss Sunday Mass in this circumstance.

You may be able to attend a weekday Mass instead or continue to watch livestream or prerecorded Mass. Anyone in a higher at-risk category and anyone showing signs of illness, has these alternate means of worship

and should be responsible toward the preservation of God’s gift of life.


Brothers and sisters, thank you for your cooperation through this time. Thank you for your prayers and your fervent hunger for the Eucharist and the return to public worship. As your shepherd, it gives me great joy to see this love for Jesus and the Church during a time that is otherwise distressing. We are praying for light at the end of the tunnel and a return to the Sacraments, but we must be prudent and safe about planning this transition. Nobody knows what lies ahead, as to the vaccination and cure of this virus. Keep in mind that our mission is being redesigned, but not changed. We are working now to discover, surface, and strengthen the intentional discipleship of the good people of this diocese. God will bring immense good from this trial and you are the good! Take heart! Jesus is with us!


Bishop Stephen Berg



Please join the four bishops of the three Catholic Dioceses of Colorado (Denver, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo) in praying a Novena to Our Lady of Fatima beginning May 4th through May 12th. We ask Our Blessed Mother to intercede for us before her Son for a swift end to the Coronavirus pandemic, a complete surrender to Jesus and to His Divine Mercy, and that we might return to regular Mass attendance with a revitalized devotion to and belief in His Real Presence in the Eucharist. We also implore the intercession of two of the Fatima visionaries who died of the Spanish Flu pandemic—St. Francisco Marto and St. Jacinta Marto.Join us via Facebook Livestream on May 1st at 1PM for the Renewal of the Consecration of our diocese and country to Mary, Mother of God. This renewal of our existing concecration to Our Lady under the titles of Immaculate Conception and Our Lady of Guadalupe is done in union with the bishops of the United States and Canada in response to the pandemic.
