The news is out: [Feb. 18—The leader of Maine’s Catholic community said Thursday a new executive order from the governor updating the gathering size limit in places of worship is “unacceptable” and will increase capacity levels in only a handful of Catholic churches.
“This ruling is unacceptable and does nothing to provide relief to our parishes and parishioners,” said Bishop Robert Deeley of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland in a news release. “Many Maine Catholics who were frustrated by the previous limits are now perplexed and upset. The governor must reconsider this and go to a percentage model.”
Deeley was responding to Gov. Janet Mills’ executive order last week that updated the gathering size limits for houses of worship to 50 people or five people per 1,000 square feet of space, whichever is greater. The previous limit was 50 people.]
