Reopening Church Buildings

RESOURCES REGARDING THE REOPENING OF CHURCH BUILDINGS

While, in line with government regulations and guidelines, the Office of the Bishop recommends that churches remain closed until July 1, we are providing resources regarding the reopening of church buildings in preparation for our eventual ability to gather together, once again. 

Starting May 21st, religious gatherings of no more than 10 people will be allowed statewide. Social distancing measures must be enforced and all participants must wear masks. Additionally, drive-in and parking lot services will be permitted. The state is convening an Interfaith Advisory Council to discuss proposals to safely bring back religious services.
