We are advised by the Navajo Nation to Stay at Home and to limit our movement if and when possible.  Public gatherings ought not exceed 5 people.  Drive-in gatherings are acceptable.  Numbers continue to rise for those affected by COVID-19.
Based upon these parameters, churches on the Navajo Nation will continue to remain closed at least until August.  On July 29, parish teams will re-evaluate the status of our areas and decide whether to open in August sometime or continue to remain closed until further notice.
Continue to walk in beauty and safety.
