Statement on so-called Catholic Masses

It is the case that Christian services that appear to be Catholic Masses, but in actuality are not, are celebrated within the territory of the Archdiocese of Denver by various ex-priests, priests without faculties, invalidly ordained priests, priests who are part of sects not in communion with the Pope, etc. These services, while they have the semblance of being authentic celebrations of the Mass, are in fact, not; they are invalid and illicit. Catholics should neither attend these services nor partake in their communion. Participation in such services does not fulfill one’s Sunday obligation.

Society of St. Pius X

Concerning churches that form part of the Society of St. Pius X, which is not in full communion with the pope. While it is true that the society’s priests are validly ordained, they have not been given permission to exercise their ministry. Masses celebrated at St. Isidore and the Annunciation Chapel are not sanctioned by the Archbishop of Denver. Catholics should neither attend these Masses nor partake in communion.
