Catholics around Indiana will be excused from attending mass a bit longer as the state continues to battle to coronavirus.
Catholic Bishops around Indiana, including the Diocese of Fort Wayne and South Bend, released a joint statement Monday. It extended the previous dispensation, which had been due to expire later this month, through November 1.
The Indiana bishops originally suspended public liturgies on March 18 as a response to the pandemic. Public liturgies resumed in many parts of the state, including the local Diocese, in late May.
