No turnout at Easter | Free press

As with Christmas, there should also be no personal services at Easter. The German Bishops’ Conference is surprised. But it has not been entirely decided yet.

Bonn (dpa) – The German Bishops’ Conference has been surprised by the demand to forgo church services in the form of attending Easter. “The result took us by surprise this morning without any warning from the news,” tweeted bishops’ conference spokesman Matthias Kopp.

“We will discuss this during the day.” The federal and state governments agreed that evening to ask the religious communities not to be present at Easter. Until now, the churches assumed that they would be able to hold services at Easter in accordance with the Corona rules.
