Palm Sunday Mass with Bishop Burns and Bishop Kelly

Pope on Palm Sunday: Life, measured by love, is meant to serve others.

With a small procession down the vast and empty central nave of St. Peter’s Basilica, Pope Francis began the first of a series of Holy Week liturgies celebrated without the presence of the faithful from the general public.

**Please join us at Noon **

Bishop Edward J. Burns and Auxiliary Bishop Greg Kelly are asking Christians throughout North Texas to join the 1.3 million Catholics in the Diocese of Dallas in praying the Our Father at 12 noon on Wednesday, March 25th. The Bishop has also asked the leaders of other denominations to join in this effort and several have pledged their congregants to the effort. They include the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas, the Northern Texas/Louisiana Area Lutheran Church, and the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church.

The invitation from Bishop Burns comes in answer to Pope Francis' call to the leaders of all Christian churches and Christians everywhere, to join together in praying the Our Father on March 25th to implore God to rid the world of the COVID- 19 pandemic. In addition, and as a call to prayer, all participating churches are asked to ring their bells at noon on Wednesday.

According to Bishop Burns, “It is important that in these days of trial and great fear at the threat of the coronavirus, that all Christians lift our voices together in prayer to ask God our Heavenly Father for an end to this sad, turbulent time; and to pray for all those who have lost their lives to the virus, those who mourn them, as well as those battling the disease and those suffering dire financial circumstances at this time. May our Lord Jesus Christ bring comfort and healing.”

Diocese of Dallas churches, schools to close for 2 weeks


By David Sedeño
The Texas Catholic

Editor's note: Deletes reference to confessions, which continue as scheduled.

Mass and activities at 79 Catholic churches will be canceled and 33 Diocese of Dallas Catholic schools will close for two weeks in an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, Bishop Edward J. Burns announced at a news conference on March 13.

That means that through March 30 all weekday and Sunday Masses will be canceled, as well as activities at the parishes. Classes at the schools that operate under the auspices of the Diocese of Dallas will close through March 27.

Most of the Diocese of Dallas schools and those several private Catholic schools already have Spring Break scheduled for March 16-20. That would mean an additional week off, with some of those campuses converting the second week of closure to their online academic protocols.

Bishop Burns said that the decision to cancel Masses, close the parishes and the schools through the end of the month came after a meeting on March 13 with the Presbyteral Council, a group of pastors from throughout the diocese, which extends throughout nine counties.

"To eliminate the spread, we need to eliminate the large gatherings," he said.

Churches will be open for individual prayer and Eucharistic adoration.

The diocese joins several other dioceses across the country in curtailing its Masses, public gatherings and celebrations, and school academic and extra-curricular activities in effort to curtail the spread of the virus.

The bishop also said that the faithful are encouraged to view a Mass on television or livestream.

The closure of the parishes means that the usual Sunday offerings, used to pay staff and other expenses could be impacted and the bishop asked that the faithful remain committed to supporting parishes via online giving or other ways.

Additionally, during Lent, many parishes sponsor meals on Fridays, such as Lenten fish fry dinners and those also will be impacted.

A day earlier, on March 12, Bishop Burns had issued a decree that gave dispensation for Sunday Mass to those over 60; those with chronic medical conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, lung disease and cancer; those with compromised immune system; and to those considered at-risk.

The bishop offered prayerful suggestions for those who cannot attend Mass such as devoting oneself to prayer and reflection, Lenten meditations, reading scripture, praying the rosary or novenas and other Catholic devotions. Mass will also be livestreamed from the cathedral every Sunday in both English and Spanish.

The announcement comes on the heels of parish and diocesan school and several private Catholic schools in Dallas closing their campuses earlier in the week.

Officials at St. Rita Catholic Church and School community and Ursuline Academy of Dallas announced early on March 11 that their campuses would be closed after a person showing symptoms of COVID-19 had come into contact with individuals at those school and church communities.

Later that day, officials at Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas and Cistercian Preparatory School in Irving also announced that they would be closed for the remainder of the week.

Jesuit, Cistercian, Ursuline, The Highlands School, Cristo Rey Preparatory School and Mount St. Michael's Catholic School, private schools in Dallas, also will be observing Spring Break from March 16-20.

The decision of whether their campuses would remain closed an additional week and perhaps switch to online protocols would be determined by each of their administrations.
