Directives For Church Services Emergency Measures Pandemic And Epidemic Roman Catholic Diocese Of Charlottetown
The Directives of Worshipsafe focus on the safe opening of our Churches and the participation of the faithful in the celebration of the Eucharist and other Sacraments and Rites of the Catholic Church.
