Permission to Re-introduce the Common Cup
Earlier this month, I notified the clergy of the diocese that parishes now have permission to re-introduce the Common Cup, following a period of consultation and after thorough communication within their respective parishes. The letter sent to clergy can be found by clicking here. Due to staffing shortages, we have not yet had an opportunity to update the Covid-19 guidelines on the diocesan website as indicated in the letter, but that will happen within the next week. In the meantime, I wanted you to be aware of this update to our Covid-19 protocols. When feasible, I would encourage you to begin consultation and conversation in your parishes about re-introducing the Common Cup. While I do not anticipate that all parishes will choose to do so, it is nonetheless important to have these conversations. If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to our office. Thank you. – Bishop Sandra
