Dear friends,

We are happy that many Catholic parishes in the DC Metropolitan Area are able to reopen this weekend and abide by local state and diocesan social distancing guidelines. Unfortunately, for now, the CIC remains closed to in-store purchases and public access to the Sacraments.

We are working on a process to begin public Masses again that incorporates the DC Mayor’s Office and Archdiocese of Washington’s guidelines regarding social distancing in our chapel and bookstore. We will post all updates on our website and social media pages.

In the meantime, our Mass livestream will continue daily at 12:00 pm EDT. Furthermore, as a reminder, Archbishop Gregory is continuing the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns to share, we’d love to hear from you and will do our best to respond promptly. We look forward to opening soon and wish you a blessed Pentecost.

In His Service,
The CIC Family
