Suspending masses?

Masses may be suspended if flu spread worsens

MANILA, Philippines – The Catholic Church is condering (sic) suspending Masses should the spread of the A(H1N1) flu virus become worse in the Philippines – as a “last resort.”

But Health Secretary Francisco Duque III, along with some priests and parishioners, thinks the proposal unnecessary, according to Mariz Umali in her GMA Weekend Report aired on Sunday, shortly after midnight.

The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines made the announcement through Caloocan Bishop Deogracias Yñiguez.

They should suspend masses for contaminating people with Gerin Oil.
