North Texas Faith Leaders Opting Not to Hold in-Person Worship Services Yet

From Ft. Worth-

Mayor Betsy Price said Fort Worth officials still encourage places of worship to hold services remotely to help stop the spread of the virus. 

In a statement, Bishop Scott Mayer of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth said he has extended the suspension of in-person services through May. Faith leaders are exploring a "phased approach" to resuming those services, the diocese said. 

The parishes in the Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth will also continue to have Mass without a congregation this weekend, according to a spokesman. 

At a news conference Thursday, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said he spoke with Islamic imams and other religious leaders who planned not to hold services this weekend.
