February 5, 2021

On February 4, Governor Lamont issued a new Executive Order which includes a provision for the “Relaxation of Limits on Religious Gatherings”. It provides that “religious, spiritual, or worship gatherings, if held indoors, are limited to no more than 50 percent of the venue’s capacity, and such services, if held outdoors, are limited to the number of people that can be accommodated safely by the venue or location, provided that all persons present at any such indoor or outdoor gathering wear masks, unless speaking from designated safe locations, and that a distance of 6 feet is maintained between all persons or groups not from the same household.”

The Connecticut Catholic Conference welcomed this easing of attendance for restrictions at houses of worship as “an important step toward welcoming back more of our Faithful to Mass and the sacraments.” It noted that freedom of religion is among the most sacred of our God given and Constitutional rights. Our Church will always work to protect and vindicate this right. At the same time we remain firmly committed to ensuring that all steps are taken to promote public health and safety.

There are two things to be noted: We are now free to open our churches up to 50% capacity, and the precautionary measures for Mass in the Archdiocese (distancing, masking, sanitizing, no handouts, no congregational singing, etc.) remain in force. Pastors still have to exercise discretion as to what their churches can safely accommodate with regard to the number of people to be admitted.
