Jakarta – Parish priests, priests, nuns, religious and all the faithful will have to respect strict health protocols during the Christmas period. And even the liturgical celebrations will be influenced by the measures in question. To be able to celebrate a Mass in the presence of the people of God, each diocesan Catholic community must be located in a “green zone” and have received permission by the appropriate local governmental Task Force. This is what the Secretary of the Commission for Social Communications of the Indonesian Bishops’ Conference , Father Steven A. Lalu, reported to Agenzia Fides, talking about how Catholics in Indonesia will be able to celebrate Christmas 2020, marked by the Covid-19 pandemic. Each of the 38 Indonesian dioceses, therefore, will receive and give the faithful different dispositions, in full compliance with the health protocols adopted by the authorities, according to the local situations in the vast archipelago, reported Fr. Lalu.
