Bishop Kettler video message: Staying connected in this time of trial

“Like you, I miss a lot of things because of the stay-at-home order. But what I miss the most is celebrating the Eucharist with you in person: the people of God. I’ve heard from many of you about how difficult it is not to be able to attend Mass at this time or pray together in our churches. This is necessary, however, to keep everyone safe and healthy. So we must look at other ways to gather.”

Bishop Kettler: Catholics dispensed from Sunday Mass obligation, events canceled/postponed

My staff and I are monitoring daily the recommendations offered by the Minnesota Department of Health and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and I have appointed an ad hoc committee to meet weekly to stay abreast of developments. The physical and spiritual well-being of the people of the diocese is our primary concern.
