** STATEMENT UPDATED AS OF 1:00 PM, 3/26/2020 **
Bishop Malloy issues new statment regarding indulgences.


1) Through Easter Sunday (up until and including Easter Sunday), all Masses are to continue to
be celebrated privately without the presence of the faithful.
2) I also take this opportunity to extend the dispensation given to all the faithful from the
obligation of attending Sunday Mass through Easter Sunday.
3) All adoration chapels are now to be closed in order to increase our response to protect the
faithful from the spread of the coronavirus.
