FORT WAYNE, Ind. — The Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend will allow public masses to resume May 23rd.
Bishop Kevin Rhoades has decided to lift the suspension as the rest of the state starts to ease off on the restrictions from the coronavirus pandemic. Though masses will be allowed to take place again, Rhoades is still urging you to exercise caution.
He plans to make sure of that by limiting the number of people that can attend mass for now and requires you to sit at least six feet apart from people — outside immediate family. Rhoades also says there will be organized dismissal and socially distanced communion lines.
Masses will also resume in the Diocese of Lafayette May 30th with similar restrictions, according to the Most Rev. Timothy Doherty, the Bishop of Lafayette. Masses in Evansville, Gary, and Indianapolis are still on hold.
