Amid concerns of the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), the Diocese of Owensboro would like to take this time to share that in this rapidly changing situation, we will continue to monitor and provide updates as we receive more information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Kentucky Department for Public Health (DPH). The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops also has a webpage devoted solely to this situation. You can find prayers, resources, links to live-stream opportunities and more here:

Parishioner Calling Effort
Many parishes have already begun an effort to call parishioners over 60 and some are calling all parishioners. We want to encourage this practice. If you do not have volunteers or staff to initiate this, or need organizational support such as response templates or training, contact Jeff Andrini directly. He would be happy to work with you, or your designated person, to implement this calling effort in your parish. The purpose of this Parishioner Calling Effort is to support our parishioners by assuring them of our prayers and being a resource for any immediate needs.  Please click here for a sample script to help you make contact.

Esfuerzo de llamadas a los parroquianos
Muchas parroquias ya han comenzado un esfuerzo para llamar a los parroquianos mayores de 60 años y algunas están llamando a todos sus parroquianos. Queremos animar esta práctica. Si no tienen voluntarios o personal para iniciar esto, o necesitan apoyo organizacional como guiones o capacitación, comuníquense directamente con Jeff Andrini o el Diácono Cristóbal Gutiérrez. Les encantaría trabajar con ustedes, o con su persona designada, para implementar este esfuerzo de llamadas en su parroquia. El propósito de este esfuerzo de llamadas a los parroquianos es apoyar a nuestros parroquianos asegurándoles de nuestras oraciones y siendo un recurso para cualquier necesidad inmediata.
