The Church has revealed that feast processions will only be allowed to occur should the health authorities give the green light. This regulation was part of the Church’s directives for summer feast celebrations which take effect today. With feasts and outdoor activities stopped to mitigate COVID-19 spread, the Church warned that measures should always be respected and it will be up to the parish priest to draw up a programme for liturgical celebrations.
Celebrations are to be held on Sunday or a feast date, with those held outside the church building being only allowed by health authorities’ permission. In a statement, the Church stated that cooperation and maturity between different parties would truly honour the respective saints as COVID-19 remains a very real danger.
