A new Ohio Department of Health order mandates face coverings in public in Franklin County beginning today, Wednesday, July 8, at 6 pm. Because Our Lady of Perpetual Help is in Franklin County, we are subject to this order.
Beginning tomorrow, Thursday, July 9, everyone who comes to Our Lady of Perpetual Help church or school for any reason—including Mass—will be required to wear a mask or face covering as stated in the order. Full details can be found here.
Bishop Brennan has given all residents in the Diocese of Columbus a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass through September 13, 2020. We live stream the 8:30 am Mass every Sunday on our YouTube channel, and we would love for everyone to join us however they feel most comfortable.
We pray for an end to this virus, and for health and safety for our community.
