Catholic churches have joined the long list of businesses and organizations to cancel events and halt certain operations in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The Catholic Diocese of Salina, which includes the St. Isidore’s, St. Thomas More and Seven Dolors parishes in Manhattan, announced Tuesday that all masses have been canceled with the exception of funeral masses.
Kerry Ninemire, a pastor at Seven Dolors, says there are plans to offer mass over the internet.
.Ninemire also recommended watching masses online at wordonfire.org.
Financial giving to the church will remain available online and through the mail, but Ninemire says the situation could get complicated for the church.
