As coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns continue, the Diocese of Greensburg said it is “making a coordinated effort to encourage self-isolation but deter loneliness.”

“Our mission is to help parishioners stay connected to their faith during this time of crisis,” the diocese said in a news release.

The diocese — which serves roughly 140,000 parishioners at 78 parishes in Westmoreland, Armstrong, Indiana and Fayette counties — will have close to 20 online options available for area Catholics to watch Mass over the next few weeks. Parishioners can also text the word “Faith” to 724-305-3057 to sign up for text message alerts.
