Military members around the world who align with the Catholic faith may have to go without Sunday Mass services, due to the government shutdown and the subsequent ban on contract priests on bases.
"Until the federal government resumes normal operations, or an exemption is granted to contract and [government services] priests, Catholic services are indefinitely suspended" at several installation around the world, said John Schlageter, general counsel for the U.S. Archdiocese for the Military Services, Catholic News Agency reported.
As of now, he said, they "are not permitted to work — not even to volunteer. During the shutdown, it is illegal for them to minister on base, and they risk being arrested if they attempt to do so."
