INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Indiana’s Roman Catholic bishops on Thursday extended a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation until further notice.

The bishops issued a statement citing “the continued increase of COVID-19 cases in our state” for extending the dispensation.

The statement was issued by the bishops of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis and the dioceses of Gary, Lafayette, Fort Wayne-South Bend, and Evansville.

Many parishes have turned to live-streaming Masses for the convenience of their congregants.
