Parish reopens largest churches

Stella Maris services are open to the public again, but not at all six locations within the parish. Secretary Laurie Orthober says that Jacksonport, Washington Island, and Egg Harbor will be slow to restart mass. The reasons are two-pronged. The churches rely on two retired priests to officiate mass in addition to the primary pastor. Both are older, and for health reasons, Stella Maris is reluctant to press them back into duty too soon. Orthober mentioned that even with the reduced schedule, only one service reached the capacity limit of 25 percent set by the Green Bay Diocese.


No timeline has been set for the transition to Phase Three of the reopening plan, which would most likely increase the attendance threshold to 50 percent.
