It has come to our attention that some of the parishes and clergy are distributing information which is contrary to the diocesan guidelines on the Covid vaccination. The guidelines are:
“Those who wish to be vaccinated are welcome to do so and those who do not are not compelled to do so. The question of the vaccine is a medical, and not an ecclesiastical one.”
We ask that the parishes and any clergymen who have deviated from this middle path by erroneously stating that the vaccine is mandatory, or that it is unallowable, correct their communications/publications immediately. Please contact the Secretary of the Diocese, Fr. Gregory Joyce, with questions.
