To the People of God of the Diocese of Saginaw from Bishop Robert Gruss (March 16)

What I write to you today is very difficult news to bear. But in a greater abundance of caution and from what I have heard from the local healthcare professionals, I believe it is in the best interest given these 'extraordinary' times. Therefore, beginning tomorrow March 17 through Sunday, April 5, I am temporarily suspending all public Masses throughout the Diocese of Saginaw. This action of suspending all public Masses flows from the Catholic Church’s essential belief in the preciousness of every human life."
