COVID-19 Forces Changes In Easter Weekend Observences And Church Functions

James Conlon
St. Francis of Assisi Parish

The COVID-19 outbreak has led to serious changes in how those of Christian faith will mark Good Friday and Easter on Sunday.  The pandemic has also led to changes in the way religious leaders interact and serve parishioners.  Father James Conlon is Reverend at St. Francis of Assisi in Ann Arbor.  He joined WEMU's David Fair to discuss religious life adaptations needed during the coronavirus crisis.
