Public Mass Reopening Plan

St. Mary’s Cathedral has developed a plan for reopening our public Masses with limited capacity starting May 30th. The plan was developed in accordance with federal and state health guidelines and within the Diocese of Grand Island Guidelines. The plan involves continuing to offer a livestream option, registration for attendance, social distancing and safety measures. Note:  You are not obligated to attend Sunday Mass.  The church has dispensed us from this obligation. 

Temporary Mass Times

Saturday Evening: English – 4pm, Spanish- 6pm

Sunday: English – 7am, 11am, 5pm; Spanish – 9am, 1pm

Weekday:  English – 7am Daily, Thursday 5:15pm; Spanish - Wednesday and Friday 5:15pm

Sunday Mass:

We have been using a program called “Eventbrite” to encourage people to reserve a registration to attend the weekend masses.

We have found that this practice is not practical for our  community.  So, for the time being, we will cease using this   service.  This past week we did have to lock the doors for the Spanish 9 am mass as all of our spaces were full.  Our Spanish 1 pm mass was almost completely full.

We encourage our Spanish speakers to take advantage of the Saturday evening 6 pm mass.  This mass is the vigil mass for Sunday.  All of the prayers and readings are the same as Sunday’s.  This mass “counts” as the Sunday mass.

Please watch the following video to help prepare you for returning to Mass.

Questions about the reopening plan? Here are some helpful documents for you to read:


We will continue to livestream certain masses throughout the week.  Livestreamed masses can be watched live on Facebook or on YouTube once uploaded. You can find links to Facebook and YouTube at the top of the page. 

Sunday: English – 11am; Spanish – 9am

Weekday:  English – 7am Daily, Thursday 5:15pm; Spanish - Wednesday and Friday 5:15pm

Worship Aid - Now Live!

There will not be missals in the pews at this time, making it difficult to follow along with the Mass.  You are welcome to bring your own worship aid, or use St. Mary's digital worship aid.  Each week, our worship aid will be available on MyParishApp.  You may use your phone or tablet to access the worship aid.  Simply open MyParishApp, click on the Worship Aid button, click on the correct link, then turn your phone to the side and follow along!  If you are new to MyParishApp, be sure to favorite St. Mary's Cathedral after you download the app.
