The Archdiocese of Baltimore has prepared a plan for reopening parishes when it is safe to do so. Watch the accompanying video for an update from Archbishop Lori and for information on what public Masses will look like when they resume.
Phase I of the reopening plan begins May 15 at 5 p.m., allowing churches to be open for private prayer and adoration. Parishes may offer the sacraments of reconciliation and baptism, and funeral and wedding Masses may be held with a limit of 10 attendees.
The start of Phase II will begin the weekend of May 30-31, when public Masses can begin at the pastor’s discretion and where it is permissible to do so based on conditions in the local jurisdiction.
