A statement from Archbishop Lucas on the governor’s decision to ease the state’s COVID-19 restrictions, which includes a resumption of religious services:

“I am grateful that soon we will be able to welcome parishioners back to our churches for Mass. We will work within the necessary restrictions for everyone’s safety. We continue to pray for those who lead our local and state governments, those who shape our public health policies, all suffering from COVID-19 and those who care for them.”
