Important Information Regarding COVI-19 from the Bishop

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

I hope this letter finds you well during this most turbulent of times. Governor DeWine unveiled a new color-coded warning system for the state of Ohio at a news conference this afternoon. It shows county-by-county hot spots as the coronavirus continues to spread across the state.

The new system displays the prevalence of the virus in each county, making it easier to implement additional closures or measures on a county-by-county basis. More information on how these levels and indicators work follows below.

In light of this new data, I have made the difficult but necessary decision that any of our congregations located in counties that fall within alert level 3 or 4 as defined by the state, should revert back to phase 1 as set out in our Phased Return to Increasing In-person Parish Life document. This means that no in-person services can take place in those specific counties.  (Read More)
