The Bishops of Ohio have decided to further suspend all public liturgies until May 29th with the hope that public Mass will resume on the weekend of May 30/31. This, of course, depends on further directives by the Governor.
With this in mind, diocesan staffs will be working on reasonable, gradual, and responsible initiatives for welcoming back the faithful in time to Sunday Mass. Pastors are encouraged to be working with their staff members and parish leaders to begin preparatory steps. These preparatory measures, of course, will be determined once the diocese distributes liturgical guidelines in the near future.
Our staff members have also been working with engaged couples, RCIA, and others who are preparing for sacraments. We will also continue to work with families who need to delay Masses of Christian Burial.
Thank you for your continued patience and for your prayers for the parish community and for those personally impacted by COVID-19.
