Rome New Church Closings Decree

ROME — The Diocese of Rome has issued a new decree partially reversing Thursday’s decision to close all Catholic churches in the city, now ordering that parish and mission churches be reopened.

The new decree, signed again by Cardinal Angelo De Donatis, states that “every precautionary measure in the Church must bear in mind not only the common good of civil society but also that singular and precious good of the faith, especially of the least among us.”
