In a Pastoral letter to the people of the Diocese, Bishop Robert McElroy states that God has brought us vaccines that can heal us and heal our world. “It is vitally important that all of us receive the Covid Vaccine,” he says in his letter, affirming that all three vaccines in current use are safe and effective. He adds that “They are fully approved for use at this moment by the teachings of our Church.”
Bishop McElroy notes that Bishop Dolan, Bishop Bejarano and he have all received the vaccine. “The sooner we are all vaccinated, the sooner we will be able to return to the many joys of our lives that we have missed during this past year of suffering.”
