Blessed Trinity Catholic Church is open for Public Masses. Reservations are not required. The general dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass is no longer in effect in the Diocese of St. Augustine.
While the general dispensation is removed, there are specific instances where the dispensation will continue. One does not have an obligation to attend Mass on Sunday in the following circumstances:
- You are ill, or your health condition would be significantly compromised if you
were to contract an infectious illness (i.e., you have underlying conditions or are
in a high-risk category). Please use the dispensation and do not attend Mass.
- You exhibit flu-like symptoms. Please use the dispensation and do not attend
- You have good reason to think you might be asymptomatic of a contagious
illness (e.g., you were in recent contact with someone who tested positive for a
contagious illness such as COVID or influenza). Please use the dispensation and
do not attend Mass.
- You care for the sick, homebound, or infirmed.
- You are pregnant.
- Those 65 years of age or older (per the CDC’s recommendation of high-risk
- You cannot attend Mass through no fault of your own (e.g., no Mass is offered,
you are infirmed, or, while wanting to go, you are prevented for some reason
you cannot control (e.g., your ride did not show up, the church was at capacity).
These categories will be reviewed in due course and revised as needed. Those who do not attend Mass must still observe the Lord’s Day and are encouraged to spend time in prayer on Sunday, meditating on the Lord’s passion, death, and resurrection; an excellent way to do this is through participating in a broadcast/live stream of the Sunday Mass. We continue to offer our Live Stream during the 10 am and 2pm (Spanish) Sunday Masses .
