The Diocese of Superior won't be making immediate changes in the wake of the state's safer-at-home order being struck down. But the Rev. James Powers, bishop for the Diocese of Superior, said he's working on a plan to resume limited public weekend Mass "as soon as it seems prudent."
"I have been steadily working on a plan with the other four bishops of the state to resume Holy Communion services for less than 10 parishioners at a time to start in the next week or two," Powers said.
The Diocese churches have been open for holy hours of private prayer with nine or fewer people at a time, and many churches have provided live-stream and recorded Mass.
"We continue to pray for all those infected by COVID-19 and for the medical providers and other workers at risk of exposure," Powers said in a news release Friday. "I also continue to pray daily for all in our Diocese, especially our priests, parish staff and parishioners during these times of no Mass and Eucharist."
A resumption of limited public weekend Mass will ultimately include health precautions, attendance limits and social distancing, Powers said.
