Worship Services Suspended, Altered In San Antonio Amid COVID-19 Concerns

San Antonio Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller issued a decree Friday that suspends all public masses in parishes and other chapels this weekend. Funeral services will continue, but with an awareness of congregation size. Churches will remain open in the daytime for private prayer.

As of Sunday March 15, two travel-related cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in San Antonio.

First Presbyterian suspended Sunday services. It offered a streamed service on its website Sunday at 11 a.m.

St. Mark's Episcopal Church hosted a virtual morning prayer service on Facebook Live at 10 a.m. Sunday in lieu of its in-person services.

The video will be posted later on the church's website. Community Bible Church also offered its services online and closed its campus through March 23.

Check with your place of worship for more information on weekend services.
