Green Bay Diocese announces return to public masses
The Diocese of Green Bay has announced the return of public masses with some limits on gatherings and social distancing.
Bishop David Ricken says public mass will begin Corpus Christi weekend, June 13-14.
The Diocese has been holding virtual mass due to the Safer at Home order in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The order, which was overturned by the Wisconsin Supreme Court, limited gatherings.
“This approach acknowledges that each parish has the flexibility to go back and forth between Return to Mass with up to 25 percent occupancy, Holy Communion Outside of Mass or live stream only with spiritual communion, depending upon the evolving circumstances related to the coronavirus in the weeks/months ahead and in consultation with the diocesan monitoring team,” said Bishop Ricken. “Our return to Mass and ministry needs to take the health and safety of all God’s people into consideration as we move forward.”
