Bishop Zarama has issued new Guidance on the Commencement of the Public Celebration of Mass, other Sacraments, Liturgies and Public Devotions.
On May 7, Bishop Luis Rafael Zarama sent the following letter to his brother priests, providing updated directives for Masses and Sacraments as North Carolina enters phase 1 of the plan for a gradual return to normalcy, which goes into effect at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 8.
Dear Brother Priests,
It remains a difficult challenge during this time to balance our need for the Sacraments with the need to protect public health.
As people of faith, we all are called upon to make sacrifices that will benefit others. The exercise of these current limitations, as difficult and frustrating as they may be, should be viewed as charitable acts offered for others.
We have been presented with a challenge that should call us to respond not as individuals who put their needs first but as a family united in Christ’s love.
As we begin to move through evolving “phases” of public interaction, I would ask that you as my brother priests, as well as the entire community of the faithful, do so with patience and humility.
I will continue to waive the obligation of the faithful to attend Sunday Mass. At this time, for a great many in our diocese, a return to Mass in any form will not be prudent for health reasons, nor practical because of social distancing. I encourage the continued livestreaming of Masses for all parishes who are currently doing so.
As we begin to explore offering Sacraments as well as prayer and adoration in our churches as outlined in the following, we will do so following community health guidance. We will also be respectful and reverent to the Sacraments as we adhere to that health guidance.
Please pray for each other, especially for those who are ill or afraid.
Please pray for healthcare professionals and for all those whose daily lives are impacted by this situation.
Please also pray that our actions reflect to others the goodness of God and that together we can give His strength to all those who are suffering and burdened by this situation.
† Luis Rafael Zarama, J.C.L.
