Dear friends,
In relation to the Corona Virus, it is with great sadness I pass on the following announcement from our Bishop. The full letter will be available tomorrow on our website:

Dear Faithful,
out of pastoral concern for all, and after prayer and discernment,
as well as hearing from the priests and the Faithful, I announce that the regularly
scheduled Masses and other Liturgical events in Parish Churches in the Diocese
of Venice will be suspended from March 20, 2020 until after Easter, when the
situation can be re-evaluated. Visitation to Churches to pray is also suspended.
Therefore, the Faithful and visitors to the Diocese are dispensed from any
obligation to attend Mass during this period.
Yours in Christ,
Frank J. Dewane, Bishop of the Diocese of Venice.

There will be mass in the church this Friday 20th, after that we are obliged to close the church.
