Church Reopening The Pastors received a notice last week with Diocesan plans and instructions for Phase I of reopening parishes for Mass and Sacraments. We are still under the Governor’s stay at home orders until June 6th. At that time and depending on the new findings, a date will be announced for beginning Phase I. There will be no changes before June 6th. Phase I is complicated with lengthy instructions. A committee is reviewing them for further study and recommendations. More information to follow.
