Catholic Churches To Stay Open During Lockdown
Catholic churches in Hungary will stay open and services will continue to be public, the Hungarian Catholic Bishops’ Conference said in a statement.

In view of the country’s lockdown starting next Monday “churches are especially important as places for spiritual renewal and prayer”, the statement said, but added that local bishops would relieve church-goers of their obligation to attend mass.

Services will be held in line of curfew and other regulations, with special regard to physical distancing and wearing masks, the statement said.
