Maine bishop protests restrictions on church attendance
February 18, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Robert Deely of Portland has said that new emergency orders issued by Maine’s Governor Janet Mills are “unacceptable.” The orders restrict the size of a church congregation to five people per 1,000 square feet. (The previous emergency rule had limited congregations to 50, regardless of church size.) Bishop Deely said the new rule “provides no real advance,” and urged the governor to follow other states in allowing churches to fill 50% or at least 25% of their available capacity.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
