Public Masses in Scotland resumed Wednesday with a maximum number of 50 people permitted to attend regardless of church size.
The Scottish Government permitted public Masses to begin again from July 15, 118 days after they were suspended on March 19 and 11 days after they resumed over the border in England.
Bishop Hugh Gilbert, the president of the Bishops' Conference of Scotland, told CNA that the 50-person limit would be "irksome for larger churches" but was subject to review.
"It is to be reviewed, I think, at the end of this month. It is certainly a limitation for larger churches," he said.
