This weekend will see the parishes of the Diocese of Lansing re-open for public Mass. Deo gratias! To help parishes, priests and parishioners attend Holy Mass safely during this time of pandemic, Bishop Earl Boyea has issued a video aimed at explaining the new health and safety protocols which will apply to those attending Mass. “Such things are important but please don’t let these contemporary realities obscure this timeless truth: He is here. He knows you. He loves you. He is calling you. Welcome home,” say Bishop Boyea in the introduction to the video.
