Caserta, the decision of Bishop Cirulli: unvaccinated priests will not be able to distribute communion

I priests unvaccinated will not be able to distribute communion. The bishop of the diocese of Teano-Calvi (Caserta) established this by decree, Giacomo Cirulli, which extended the ban also to unvaccinated deacons and lay people given the pandemic situation “in constant and serious worsening”. He also decided to suspend all “pastoral, catechetical and formative activities in the presence” and stressed that the hosts on the altar must “be kept strictly covered in the foreseen sacred vessels”. Furthermore, the bishop recalled the words of the Papa: “Vaccinating with vaccines authorized by the competent authorities is an act of love”.

Cirulli had already intervened on December 29th last with a decree in which it prohibited in the churches of the diocese “any artistic manifestation such as concerts or other events” and in which it provided that entry was allowed “only to a number of people already established based on the capacity of the church” and in which recommended “the presence of vigilant at the entrance of the church that they check that the permitted number is not exceeded, that they check compliance with the requirements on the mandatory nature of the Ffp2 masks and that sanitation is carried out “.
