Important Announcement:

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia has announced that Archbishop Nelson J. PĂ©rez has suspended all public Masses in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia effective at 12:00 PM on Wednesday, March 18th and until further notice.

What does this mean at Our Lady of Good Counsel? Click here to learn more about some changes and accommodations to our daily and weekly functions and devotions.


On March 12, the Archbishop dispensed the faithful from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass until further notice. Both decisions were made in response to the growing concern over the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the directives provided by government and health department officials at the local, state, and national levels. These measures will be re-evaluated pending future developments.

Though public Masses are suspended in all churches in the Archdiocese, the right and need of the faithful to hear the Word of God and celebrate the Sacraments is not put aside. Priests will continue to offer the sacrifice of the Holy Mass during this period and to honor all requested Mass intentions.

In conjunction with directives already in force in hospitals and institutions, all visits to the sick with Holy Communion, including in private homes, by priests, deacons, and extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion are suspended. In such instances, only priests will be available to celebrate the Sacraments for those in immediate danger of death. In all circumstances, government and health agency directives for group size and social distancing are to be observed as the Archdiocese of Philadelphia strives to meet the pastoral and temporal needs of all those in need.

To learn about additional modes for individuals to still participate in Sunday/Daily Mass remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic, please review the comprehensive list of options on our Mass Schedule page.
