Public Masses in parking lots to begin this weekend


Archbishop Michael Byrnes has tasked the Archdiocesan Liturgical Commission to develop the Archdiocese of Agaña’s sacramental protocols that would pave the way for the gradual return of the Church’s celebration of sacraments the Archdiocese of Agana announced Tuesday.

Liturgical Commission members are working diligently with our pastors to ensure the phased resumption of the sacraments is done with the implementation of safety and precautionary measures.

The archdiocese said Byrnes had a positive meeting with Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero’s representatives last Friday. It was preceded by a meeting of Archbishop Byrnes with his clergy.

At the end of last Sunday’s Mass of the reconsecration of Guam and Marianas to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Archbishop Byrnes provided a preview of the positive developments to come.

The Archbishop announced that our Church would begin to celebrate public Masses in parking lots this weekend, following proper social distancing protocols.
