Beloved in Christ,
Re: Resumption of Worship Services Under Specific Conditions
An official statement released by the Office of the Prime Minister today, May 22, 2020, addresses the resumption of worship services under specific conditions.
We are pleased that we are moving towards the resumption of worship services. However, we need time to assess and work out how best to resume our liturgical life given the specific conditions stipulated. As such, the practice currently in place since March 18, 2020 will continue for the time being. This means there will be no weekend Masses at the parishes until further notice.
Sunday Mass will be streamed over our social media platforms. The faithful will continue to practice Spiritual Communion as is provided for by the Church. This will be the case for New Providence, Grand Bahama and the Family Islands.
We are most grateful to those who have continued to give their material support to their parishes and the Archdiocese during this difficult time.
A further update will be issued in the course of the coming week.
Devotedly yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Patrick C. Pinder, S.T.D., C.M.G.
Archbishop of Nassau
