As a way for faithful of the Diocese to remain connected to diocesan events and their parish communities during the COVID-19 pandemic and provide them with spiritual assistance, a number of events and Masses are being livestreamed, televised or broadcast on the radio. 

The response comes after Bishop David M. O'Connell, C.M., announced the temporary suspension of all public Masses throughout the Diocese, and state and federal officials announced restrictions to curb the spread of COVID-19.
