The statement says:
“Given the continuing and growing concern about the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Bishop DiMarzio has determined that all public masses be cancelled in the Diocese of Brooklyn, beginning Monday, March 16th, until further notice. This includes weekday masses as well as Sundays. Funerals and Weddings will be permitted, but should be limited to family members only. Parish baptism celebrations should be limited to family only, if they cannot be postponed. Confirmation should be celebrated with the Rite of Confirmation without Mass, if need be, and in consultation with the Bishop scheduled to celebrate the Confirmation.
