Oregon archbishop objects to restrictions
November 20, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Alexander Sample of Portland, Oregon has protested restrictions on religious worship, noting that they are tighter than emergency restrictions on restaurants and gyms. The restrictions are particularly onerous for Catholics, he said: “We are a sacramental Church. We need to have physical presence to the mysteries....” However, when questioned about the possibility that Catholics might defy state regulations, he said that is “not going to happen.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
