It is extremely concerning that there may now be some further delay in allowing the return to public worship, wrote Father Michael J. Kane, pastor of St. Augustines Catholic Church in Coatbridge. It is deeply distressing that Catholics cannot receive the Sacraments.
COATBRIDGE, Scotland, July 7, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) ― A Catholic priest has published an objection to the Scottish governments continuing ban on public church services.
Father Michael J. Kane is the pastor of St. Augustines Catholic Church in Coatbridge, a town about 10 miles east of Glasgow. In a June 26 open letter to Member of Scottish Parliament (MSP) Fulton MacGregor, Kane criticized Scotlands plans not to allow public worship until late July.
....It is extremely concerning that there may now be some further delay in allowing the return to public worship, with the earliest date now set at 23rd July, Kane stated.
This despite the fact that the Scottish Government deems it safe to open pubs, restaurants, cinemas and other social venues.
The Catholic Church in Scotland has been in communication with Scotlands Holyrood government with its plan for the resumption of public worship. As part of Phase 2 in Scotlands emergence from the COVID-19 lockdown, Scotlands places of worship were permitted to open for private prayer on June 22, provided that so-called social distancing and hygiene protocols were followed.
Public worship began again in England on July 5, with Catholic priests reporting low attendance. The dispensation of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass in England and Wales is still in effect. Private prayer in Englands places of worship was permitted beginning June 15.
