Message from Bishop Stowe on Masking at Mass

[sent to priests of the diocese]

“With the current surge of COVID infections and the low percentage of the vaccinated in many parts of the diocese, it would be very appropriate to consider requiring masks at Mass again and to encourage people to get vaccinated. At this time, this is a recommendation for local (parish) implementation. It could develop into a diocesan policy if the need warrants it.”
