Sunday Mass at St. Alphonsus in Brooklyn Center, Minn., is sparsely attended March 15, 2020, due to concerns about spreading the coronavirus. Minnesota bishops announced May 20 that they are moving forward with plans to reopen Mass, defying current state limitations requiring 10 or fewer people at faith-based gatherings.
