Decree from Robert Cardinal Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, Divine Worship regarding Holy Week and Easter

Bishop Robert Vasa has shared a decree from Robert Cardinal Sarah, Prefect of Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, Divine Worship. Bishop Vasa commented in his letter to diocesan priests ” At this point we must continue to plan for, essentially, a cancellation of all Holy Week Services while praying that this may be avoided. As Easter draws nearer I am sure the Holy See and the USCCB will be offering additional guidance. I will pass these on as needed.”

We will publish future updates from Bishop Vasa as soon as we receive them. Let us draw together as a parish, closer to God in our Lenten prayers.
