Public Masses and gatherings will not resume this weekend at churches in the Diocese of Dallas. The health and safety of parishioners and the community at large are priorities of Bishop Edward Burns. The bishop is staying steadfast with his decree issued March 31st indicating that churches are closed through the end of this month.
A new decree will be announced after details of the Governor’s next statement can be considered. The bishop will consider information from medical experts and government officials before consulting with the diocese’s priest advisory council in coming to a decision on the best time and way to resume public services.
