Suspension of Masses in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor It was announced that 6 districts under the state of Selangor and the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur would be placed under the Movement Control Order (MCO) with effect from the 6th of May 2021 in the case of Selangor and the 7th of May in the case of Kuala Lumpur.

Although the MKN SOP permits activities in non-Muslim places of worship; His Grace, Most Reverend Archbishop Julian Leow D.D. is cognisant of the following worrying developments: alarming figures of new infections, escalating rate of infectivity, utilisation of hospital beds and ICU approaching maximum capacity in the Klang Valley.

Furthermore, he notes that inter-district travel restrictions will impede the movement of parishioners and volunteers to the various Churches, chapels and Mass Centres.

After having consulted the Archdiocesan Crisis Management Task Force, it is the decision of His Grace to temporarily suspend all public Masses in parishes located within Kuala Lumpur and the state of Selangor with effect from Friday, the 7th of May 2021 until further notice.

 

As our Holy Father, Pope Francis, has called us to pray for an end to this pandemic, let us not cease in invoking God’s intervention and seeking our Lady’s intercession as we pray the Holy Rosary during this month of May.
