Many Southern Indiana churches won't open this week

From Indiana-

It will be at least another week — if not a month — before many of Southern Indiana’s largest churches resume on-site worship services.

Gov. Eric Holcomb announced May 1 that places of worship could reopen for in-person services beginning today, May 8, as guidelines were provided by the state to encourage safety practices with the spread of COV-19 still a concern.

However, some churches are taking more time before resuming on-site worship to form plans and provide direction for those attending services.

The Rev. Mark Feather of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in New Albany said the likely earliest date for a return to in-person services for the congregation will be June 14. But he emphasized that the work of the church never ceased.

“The church is open, it’s our building that’s closed,” he said. “We have never closed as a church, the church is the people.”
