Coronavirus: Masses suspended in Pakistan's Punjab March 18, 2020

St. John’s Catholic Church in the Youhanabad area of Lahore could not hold a Mass on March 15 to mark the fifth anniversary of a terrorist attack. Suicide bombers killed 15 people and wounded more than 70 at St. John’s and a nearby church in 2015. More than 10,000 usually attend the anniversary event organized by priests and pastors. St. John’s Church remains open for personal prayers and to remember the bombing victims.
