CALIFORNIA BISHOPS ON DECISIONS REGARDING WORSHIP


“In light of the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent rulings striking down unreasonable restrictions on indoor public worship and the issuance of new guidelines by Governor Newsom removing legal mandates restricting worship, the Catholic Bishops of California remain committed to the complete resumption of indoor worship in a responsible and safe manner (...)


"Pandemic-weary Californians are welcoming many positive developments in the struggle against COVID-19. Cases appear to be stabilizing in the Golden State, those 16 years and older are or will soon be eligible for vaccination and continued diligence by the public on commonsense precautions are positive and hopeful signs.


“At the same time, the bishops note that vaccine availability is still not consistent (especially in some of the most vulnerable populations), questions persist about whether testing is sufficient and new surges may be forming in some communities. Local conditions vary so much that in order to keep our people safe, we will calibrate decisions on numbers and location to the varying conditions in each diocese. Our parishes will continue to insist on appropriate social distancing, mask wearing, hand washing and other basic and simple precautions.
