Update on dispensation, in-parish worship and access to parish facilities
February 4, 2021,
Archbishop Gregory J. Hartmayer, OFM Conv., announces the following conditions regarding in-parish worship and access to parish facilities. These procedures will be evaluated and amended, from time to time.
As new guidance is issued from the state, the Archbishop will, while being mindful of the recommendations of the CDC and the Georgia Department of Health, consider whether modifications of the protocols for church attendance and parish offices or gatherings might be in order. As it stands, the size of parish gatherings outside of the liturgy depends on the space, location, and discretion of the pastor to ensure distancing, health-screening, mask and sanitation requirements can be met. Generally, smaller groups of 25 or fewer should be the aim, though 25-50 are allowable. Larger events of 50+ people gathering in one location outside of Mass are not permitted under the state of emergency.
