Due to the public health concerns regarding the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, some parishes and other Catholic organizations and groups may cancel, postpone or modify events.
Some events may go online, provide material on a “drive-through” basis or find other ways to accommodate the ban on public gatherings. Parish websites and/or social media, such as Facebook, can be a good resource for this information.
Bishop W. Shawn McKnight is recommending that if the canceled or postponed event was intended to raise money for a ministry or service, to please consider offering people an alternative means to contribute to the ministry or service.
