Capiz archdiocese resumes public celebrations of Holy Mass

THE Archdiocese of Capiz has resumed the public celebrations of the Holy Mass on Wednesday, June 10, after government authorities eased quarantine restrictions in the province.

In a statement, the archdiocese urged the faithful to continue observing physical distancing during the celebrations.

Attendance to the celebrations is, however, limited to 50 percent of the seating capacity of the church or chapel.

People above 60 years of age and those below 20 years old are still not allowed to go out of their homes as quarantine measures remain in place.

The archdiocese also prohibits the touching of religious images in the churches.

At the St. Catherine of Alexandria parish church in Mambusao town, seminarians and civic groups assisted parishioners by providing health checks before entry to the church.

The Archdiocese of Capiz stopped holding the public celebration of the Holy Mass on March 16 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
