The restrictions put into place to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and protect people's health come to an end in the Diocese of Helsinki at the end of April.
Parishes return to their normal practices in their activities. However, we still encourage people to maintain good hand and cough hygiene and to avoid coming to church if you have symptoms of Covid-19 or some other easily transmissible disease.
From now on, the obligation to attend Mass in person on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation is in force again. However, those who are part of various risk goups may still need to avoid those Masses that generally have the greatest number of people.
For more information, please contact your parish.
