Diocese of Beaumont Decree

Dated March 18, 2020

Last Revised: 03/28/2020  10:03am

The Diocese of Beaumont has suspended all Masses and parish activities until further notice.​ The suspension includes Holy Week and Easter Services. The following directives have been established by Bishop Guillory. This information will be updated as necessary and timestamped at the bottom of this page for your reference. All parish event changes and details are listed below:

  • Sunday and Daily Masses are cancelled. The decree issued by the Bishop dispenses Catholics in the Beaumont Diocese from their obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days. However, the faithful are encouraged to view Mass on social media or television. A listing of local parishes going live can be found here.

New! OLG will be going live for Mass on Sundays at 1pm!
Mass will be bilingual and can be accessed through our YouTube Channel.

Infants who are ill or in danger of death should be baptized promptly wherever they are. A priest, by law, may confirm infants in danger of death.

  • Funerals are graveside only. Memorial Masses can be scheduled when the Bishop lifts the suspension.

  • The church building is closed until further notice.
    • Due to the updated city ordinance, the private prayer hours previously established have been cancelled until further notice.

  • Confirmations will be rescheduled through the Bishop's office at a later time.
