We Believe in Religious Freedom
A message from Houston Community Faith Leaders

Bishop Scott J. Jones, along with other Christian, Jewish, and Muslim leaders in the Houston area, urged places of worship to continue worshiping online to combat the spread of COVID-19.

In a video posted earlier this week, these leaders warned against reopening congregations too early, saying that social distancing was the best way forward to care for their neighbors.

"We support waiting so our neighbors are safe," the group said. "We support waiting so that our hospitals are not overwhelmed. Caring for our neighbors means joining in the fight to beat COVID-19…it means not increasing community spread."
