Public Mass resumed Monday for the first time in months at Catholic churches across New York City.
The first Masses were held Sunday in the Bronx, and Monday in Brooklyn and Queens.
Parts of Saint Fortunata on Linden Boulevard were sectioned off for social distancing, and officials say everyone will be required to wear a mask.
News 12 stopped by the church of Saint Benedict in Throgs Neck Sunday, as they held their first Mass since the start of the pandemic in March. Now there are restrictions in place. Seating is now limited to 25% capacity, that way everyone is able to maintain social distancing. Everyone must wear a mask, and no holy water will be allowed.
Mass will still be broadcast it for those who don’t feel comfortable attending in public yet.
