Faith Forward

It is undeniable that one of the most difficult aspects of the ongoing crisis caused by Covid-19 continues to be the temporary suspension of public Masses and sacraments. Although there are livestreamed Masses available through the parishes of the archdiocese, we all eagerly await the return of in-person practice of our faith.

To that end, the Archdiocese of New York held a press conference on Thursday, May 21, 2020 to discuss preparations that are underway for the re-opening of the archdiocese’s 288 parishes upon the approval by health and state officials.

We have prepared the following documents detailing the roadmap for re-opening the churches of the Archdiocese of New York, including current and forthcoming safety measures, liturgical accommodations, and guidelines for public participation.
