Catholic churches in Archdiocese of LA to reopen under phased plan

After being closed for more than two months due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, churches in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles can begin to open to the public the first week of June if they implement certain safety guidelines, Archbishop José H. Gomez told priests and parish staff Tuesday night.

The May 26 email included guidelines for a phased plan that allows for parishes to open for personal prayer once their individual, written safety plans are approved by the regional Auxiliary Bishop.

As part of the second phase, parishes with approved safety plans will be allowed to offer Daily Mass to the public as soon as Wednesday, June 3, provided they adhere to strict sanitary and social distancing measures.
