“We are aware of the rapidly developing district and
state guidelines regarding the coronavirus.  My
number one priority as your Archbishop is to ensure
the safety and health of all who attend our Masses,
the children in our schools, and those we welcome
through our outreach and services. Please know that
this decision does not come lightly to close our
schools or cancel Masses. We are profoundly
saddened that we are not able to celebrate our
sacraments as a community for the time being but we
know Christ remains with us at all times – specifically
in times of worry like this.
I have made available pastoral and spiritual resources
as well as TV Mass that I encourage you to use. I also
invite you to join us for Mass and prayer via
livestream in our social media. May the peace of
Christ settle any anxieties and fear we may have. Let
us continue to pray for the people whose lives have

been impacted by the coronavirus as well as those
who continue to care for them.” – Archbishop Wilton
D. Gregory
