Washington D.C., Mar 22, 2021 / 11:00 am (CNA).- The Diocese of Springfield in Illinois is restoring the Sunday obligation for most Catholics on April 11, Divine Mercy Sunday.

“The Easter season is a very fitting time to renew our commitment to worship Our Lord every weekend in commemoration of His Resurrection and to pray for God’s Divine Mercy to heal the sick and bring an end to this pandemic,” Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield stated in an announcement on Monday.

Bishop Paprocki announced the “modified” obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation beginning on April 11, with some exemptions.
