CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal John Dew of Wellington announced that the public celebration of Mass will be suspended this past weekend. Although strict new regulations in New Zealand still allow for 100 people to assemble for Mass, the cardinal said that it “proved very difficult” to make appropriate arrangements. He also ordered priests not to hear confessions or take the Eucharist to the sick—although he said that priests could “make their own decision” about bringing the sacraments to those facing death.
