Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
     I remain grateful for your ongoing patience and adaptability as we strive to provide everyone in the Diocese of Western North Carolina with the best public health and scientific information for our regathering guidelines. Following the latest CDC recommendations released on April 27, 2021, and Governor Cooper's Executive Order 209 I am glad to share with you our updated diocesan regathering guidelines, effective May 9, 2021. Read the full guidelines here.

     I am grateful for all of you and the ways in which you continue the ministry of Jesus here in Western North Carolina.
Blessings,

The Rt. Rev. José A. McLoughlin

Bishop
