Attached to this email is a PDF letter from Bishop LeVoir to the Diocese of New Ulm explaining “where we are at” regarding Mass attendance since the Governor of Minnesota has now extended the “stay at home” order, albeit augmented slightly to accommodate some additional businesses.
Unfortunately, as the Bishop explains in this letter, the Governor has not been willing to extend concessions related to religious worship that we expected to be forthcoming. Hopefully, as the Bishop notes, we will have better news early next week, so that we can begin getting back to the Mass and the Sacraments in person.
Please read the attached letter and join me in continuing to pray for an end to this very soon. FrMS
