Nothing Compares to Being There

“I have greatly desired to eat this Supper with you.” cf. Luke 22:15

All of us know instinctively that nothing compares to “being there” in person. Whether it’s being at a friend’s wedding, sitting down to have a heart-to-heart conversation, comforting a family member while she is grieving or watching as your baby takes his first steps, we all know that being physically present makes all the difference. The same logic applies to our life as Catholics. Especially when it comes to the Mass, truly, nothing compares to being there. 


The Nothing Compares initiative is an opportunity for parishes to issue a heartfelt invitation to parishioners to return to the in-person celebration of the Mass after the many long months of the pandemic.  It draws upon the central truth of our Christian faith that Jesus Christ encounters and saves us in the flesh, through in-person presence. Please find below resources and guidance to assist you in inviting your community back to the fullness of Catholic life!
