Bengaluru: In view of the state government’s recent decision to suspend all public religious services due to the surge in the second wave of the Covid pandemic, Archbishop Fr Dr Peter Machado has suspended all public liturgical services in churches, chapels, and other institutions in Bengaluru Urban and Rural districts of the Bangalore Archdiocese until April 21.

Masses and other religious services for the faithful will be suspended, according to an official circular sent by the Archbishop to all churches and religious institutions on Wednesday, April 7. Churches, chapels, and other religious institutions, on the other hand, will remain available for private visits and prayers.

For large gatherings, there will be no Eucharistic Masses. The priests, on the other hand, have been given permission to hold private masses with no or few faithful present. Matrimonial celebrations and funeral masses shall not be held in the churches. Weddings, on the other hand, are subject to a 50-person limit. Funerals can only be held in cemeteries, where a small number of 50 people will be able to attend prayer services with or without Holy Masses.
