Suspension of All Public Masses in Green Bay Diocese

Below is a link to Father Joel’s blog regarding suspension of public Masses in Diocese of Green Bay (including weekday and Sunday Masses). That news was followed quickly by Governor Evers’ order to suspend all public gatherings of 10 or more people. Mass will still be offered every day, but with very limited attendance.
You are encouraged to plan your Sunday around a televised or live-streamed Mass in order to stay connected with Jesus in the Eucharist.

Televised Masses

  • WFRV Local 5 will broadcast Bishop Ricken celebrating Sunday Mass at 10:30 a.m.
  • WBAY Channel 2 has Sunday morning Mass at 5:30 a.m. and CW14 has Mass at 8:00 a.m.

  • Sunday Mass is available on Relevant Radio 1050 AM at 9:00 a.m. They have a daily Mass as well at 12:00 p.m.

Internet Masses

  • EWTN and Relevant Radio ( offer live streaming of the Masses as they broadcast.
  • The Cathedral in Green Bay is promising a live stream of their 9:00 a.m. Sunday Mass.
  • I will be offering a live stream through my Facebook page. Stay tuned for more details.

The Catholic Church has encouraged people to come to Mass in order to connect with Jesus and one another. We are all feeling disconnected right now and looking for something solid.

Know that your church family has not disappeared. Even though we won’t be able to gather and worship together for the time being, we remain connected as members of the Body of Christ. We are all in this together and we are all suffering together. Mass will continue to be offered for you, even if you cannot attend. We will all continue to pray for each other. God isn’t nervous; we shouldn’t be worried either. I have confidence that nothing can separate us from the love of God.

Peace and joy in Jesus,
Fr. Joel
