Some good news is coming from the Archdiocese of Atlanta.

Pentecost Sunday, otherwise known as the birthday of the Catholic Church, will also mark the day churches there open their doors.

The move by their leader, Archbishop Gregory Hartmayer, comes almost two weeks after he was installed in a less than orthodox ceremony.

Catholics have been wanting to return to Mass for some time, including priests in Archbishop Hartmayer’s own archdiocese.

While priests have sent a message to the faithful, Archbishop Hartmayer has released guidelines for the churches preparing to swing upon their doors. 

He joins Currents News to share what it’s been like taking on this role during the virus crisis, and his hopes for the future for the Archdiocese of Atlanta.
