Excerpts of a Letter from our Bishops Regarding Social Distancing in our Parishes  March 30, 2021

 

There are recent successes to be celebrated in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), there have been 10.72 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine administered. Out of that 10.72 million, 7.04 million have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 3.68 million people are now fully vaccinated. This translates to approximately 30% of Texans being vaccinated. That 30% includes approximately 50% of people 65 and older.

They noted that as of March 28, 2021 the following for Wilson County: Population (16YO+) 40,488; Persons receiving 1st Dose 10,610 (26%); 2nd Dose  6,201 (15%)

Along with social distancing and mask usage, it appears that the recent increase in vaccinations has led to a significant decline in COVID-19 new cases, hospitalizations and deaths, even as Texas has fully opened its economy. These successes are likely to continue as more people are vaccinated each week. It is very important that people continue to be vaccinated, and that this positive momentum not be lost.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Archdiocese of San Antonio has balanced the spiritual needs of the faith community with the serious physical dangers of the COVID-19 pandemic. Archbishop Gustavo took swift, measured and appropriate action to protect the people of the archdiocese, and we have continued to be vigilant for more than a year.

We must still remain vigilant, however, it seems prudent to begin to relax some of the restrictions which reduce the number of parishioners who can participate in the Mass and receive the Eucharist.

Beginning this Wednesday, March 31, 2021, parishes may open all pews and reduce the social distancing requirements in the sanctuary from 6 feet to 3 feet.

It is to be emphasized that mask usage and thorough facility sanitation are still required in accordance with previous proclamations. Those protocols remain unchanged. Masks must be worn in church.

We will continue to evaluate the health situation as more information becomes available and make appropriate changes to our guidelines as circumstances dictate.                                                                                  Bishop Michael Boulette
