As we begin this new month of July, I wish to clarify with you that all liturgical restrictions that were remaining as of Pentecost Sunday are lifted effective immediately, with the exception of the distribution of the Precious Blood to the faithful and the exchange of the Sign of Peace. These two normal flu season precautions will remain in place for the coming months.
No one is required to wear a face mask on diocesan property. Those who wish to continue to wear one are free to do so as well.
The Diocese will continue to update you on matters of this nature as information is available.
Please know of my gratitude for your support during these past sixteen months of the pandemic, and be assured of my prayers as we celebrate the many freedoms of our country this Independence Day, as I am.
