LA CROSSE, Wis. ― Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse will resume celebrating Mass inside the St. Francis Chapel, beginning May 9. Mass had been suspended since April 2020 due to COVID-19 concerns.
Mass will be held each Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday at 12:15 p.m. inside the chapel, which is on the second floor of the hospital. Seating capacity will be limited. Those attending Mass must follow Mayo Clinic Health System safety protocols, including wearing a cloth mask and practicing physical distancing. If a visitor does not have a mask, Mayo Clinic Health System will provide one.
"While the chapel doors have always been open for prayer and meditation during the pandemic, we are delighted to celebrate Mass once again with those seeking the healing grace of the Eucharistic and willing to participate to live Mass.," says Father Honoré Kombo, priest chaplain at Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse.
