Catholic churches in Goa have reopened

GOA:  Around a third of all Catholic churches in Goa have reopened strictly for their parishioners after following strict protocol and obtaining special permission to do so from the archbishop’s house. From replacing wooden benches with plastic chairs that are easier to sanitise, allotting seat numbers to parishioners, covering statues to prevent kissing, and asking the entire ward to stay away if a neighbour has tested Covid-positive, Churches are going all out to ensure the faithful are not put at risk. Groups of volunteers, too, have been activated at these churches to ensure that all protocols are followed.

In Socorro, the Our Lady of Succour church, which opened last Saturday, closed six days later after some positive cases were detected in the village. “We have decided to keep it closed till the end of the month for everyone’s safety, since Covid cases have begun rising in the neighbourhood,” said parish priest Fr Santana Carvalho.
