As churches across England reopen for private prayer Monday, Catholics in neighboring Wales are still waiting for the day when they will be allowed back to their churches.
Archbishop George Stack of Cardiff told CNA that he expected the Welsh government, which has devolved power over lockdown rules, to announce a date for the reopening of places of worship before the end of June.
"We're hoping that in the next two weeks we too will get the go ahead for opening of churches for private prayer, under certain conditions of course," he said June 12.
According to Public Health Wales, 14,742 people have tested positive and 1,444 have died of COVID-19 in Wales as of June 15.
