PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — In-person Masses at the churches of St. Joseph the Worker parish are temporarily suspended after a member of the clergy team tested positive for coronavirus.

The Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh announced Friday that the clergy member last participated in a Mass on Nov. 19.

“His symptoms are mild, but I ask our parishioners to pray for him, his full recovery, and all who are afflicted during this pandemic,” said Father Frank Almade, pastor, in a release.

Live-streamed Masses will be offered until the churches reopen on Dec. 5.
