Detroit Archbishop Ends Mask Rule for Vaccinated

DETROIT — The archbishop of Detroit says face masks are no longer mandatory inside Roman Catholic churches in southeastern Michigan for people who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus.

Archbishop Allen Vigneron said Wednesday that anyone who hasn’t been vaccinated must still wear masks at Mass and other church services.

The church will rely on people to police themselves. The archbishop says that “parishes do not have the responsibility to verify who is and who is not vaccinated.”

Vigneron also says priests will no longer have to limit church capacity to 50%.

There are approximately 1.3 million Catholics in the six counties that make up the Detroit Archdiocese.
