Special Announcement re: COVID-19 from Diocese of Charleston
As of now, state officials have NOT recommended or mandated that public events be canceled, but the CDC has encouraged the more vulnerable populations to avoid large crowds. Based on that recommendation, all Masses this weekend should go on as planned.
However, Bishop Robert E. Guglielmone is granting dispensation for Masses this weekend (March 14th & 15th) to those who are at high risk for adverse health complications from COVID-19, or do not feel comfortable attending Mass. The Catholic Catechism (2181) allows you to miss Mass as a result of illness.
