Despite the rise in coronavirus cases across the city, Bishop Robert Brennan says the Catholic Church will continue to remain open providing a lifeline so many desperately need. 

The Diocese of Brooklyn has consistently taken special precautions to protect against the spread of the variant: some of those include mask-wearing, a moratorium on the distribution of wine, and no handshakes during the sign of peace. 

The synod’s diocesan phase is also well-underway in Brooklyn and Queens with listening sessions being held at the ground level to get feedback from parishioners. 

Bishop Brennan joined Currents News to talk more about what his plans are to keep the process going despite the omicron outbreak.
