Religious groups in Arizona ask Ducey to extend order into May

From Arizona-

The Episcopal Diocese of Arizona comprises 64 worshipping communities and over 21,000 residents of Arizona.  We have cancelled all in-person public worship from March 16, continuing at this time tentatively through May 25.

The Grand Canyon Synod of the ELCA compromises 90 worshipping communities and over 33,000 members in Arizona and Southern Nevada. The GCS encouraged suspension of in person worship beginning March 15 and continuing through April. With your support the GCS will extend the recommendation into May. We have also canceled out National Rostered Minister Gathering that was going to be held in Phoenix this summer.

The Southwest Conference of the United Church of Christ includes 46 congregations and 2 faith communities in Arizona, New Mexico, and El Paso, Texas representing 6,000 members. These people of faith have suspended in-person gatherings through at least May 16. We have also cancelled our church camp this summer.
