Bishop David Zubik has cancelled all weekday and Sunday Masses in the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh until further notice. Arrangements are being made to livestream more masses in the days ahead.
“Although in many ways it saddens me to make this decision, given the best advice from health experts on federal, state, and local levels, I feel it is a necessary one at this time. I’m counting on the understanding and cooperation of all in the Diocese of Pittsburgh as we pray for each other. At this difficult time, we especially are relying on the intercession of Mary, Mother of Jesus and Mother of the Church, and Saint Joseph, foster father of Jesus and Patron of the Universal Church,” Bishop Zubik said.
