In the emergency situation that our country and people are currently experiencing, the Government has decided to ban all public gatherings, including all public worships and Holy Masses. In an emergency situation, we have no other option but to do what the legitimate state authority deems best for the welfare of its people. So extreme a decision fills my heart and the heart of every Catholic with great pain, because Holy Mass is the source and centre of Christian life. I am reminded of the words of the Martyrs of Abitinae in the third century, “Sine Dominica non possumus viver” (we cannot live without mass). Therefore we love Holy Mass with all our hearts and we participate in Holy Mass as often as possible, often also during the week. At present, we have to sacrifice this suffering for the spiritual and physical welfare of the whole nation. According to the possibilities allowed by the Government, I ask all priests to celebrate Holy Mass every day as always, in private and only with the assistants needed to conduct the liturgy. It is also allowed to celebrate mass at places where a community habitually lives (convents and other congregations) for the members of the community as long as it is not a public service. Especially in the present time, we need as many priests as possible to celebrate mass for the whole humankind, the Church, and the Catholic Church in Estonia every day. In the current situation, I dispense parish members from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass. All Catholic churches in Estonia are open for private prayer, for even more hours than they were before the current crisis. This is an opportunity to be in prayer before the Holy Sacrament and to find strength and peace in it. These regulations will be in place until I inform of any changes or give further instructions.
According to the decision of the Government of the Republic of Estonia, public worship services and other high-attendance church services are prohibited.
In this context, we present Bishop Philippe Jourdan's decision to leave the churches open for personal prayer.
Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral is open for prayer: Sunday 1 pm - 5 pm weekdays 10 am - 5 pm

To receive a Holy Communion, a Catholic must read the Penitential Act and the prayer of Our Father.
We also allow for Catholics to confess at Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral before receiving the Eucharist.

TO THE PEOPLE OF GOD
AND TO ALL PERSONS OF GOOD WILL
1. The beloved Amazon region stands before the world in all its splendour, its drama and its mystery. God granted us the grace of focusing on that region during the Synod held in Rome from 6-27 October last, which concluded by issuing its Final Document, The Amazon: New Paths for the Church and for an Integral Ecology.
The significance of this Exhortation
2. During the Synod, I listened to the presentations and read with interest the reports of the discussion groups. In this Exhortation, I wish to offer my own response to this process of dialogue and discernment. I will not go into all of the issues treated at length in the final document. Nor do I claim to replace that text or to duplicate it. I wish merely to propose a brief framework for reflection that can apply concretely to the life of the Amazon region a synthesis of some of the larger concerns that I have expressed in earlier documents, and that can help guide us to a harmonious, creative and fruitful reception of the entire synodal process.
Pope Francis’ Message, published on 12 December, is entitled "Peace as a journey of hope: dialogue, reconciliation and ecological conversion".
The Pope begins by saying that hope puts us on the path to peace, while “mistrust and fear weaken relationships and increase the risk of violence.” He urges us to be artisans of peace, open to dialogue in a spirit of reconciliation, on a journey of ecological conversion that leads to a “new way of looking at life.”
Hope keeps us moving forward
Describing peace as “a great and precious value, the object of our hope and the aspiration of the entire human family”, Pope Francis says it is a goal towards which to strive in spite of seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
He recalls the scars of war and conflict borne in “the memory and in the flesh” of humanity, and says they “affect especially the poor and the vulnerable,” perpetrating humiliation and exclusion, sorrow and injustice.
Homily in Freedom Square (more speeces: www.paavsteestis.ee)
In listening to the first reading, the account of the coming of the Jewish people – now freed from slavery in Egypt – to Mount Sinai (Ex 19:1), it is impossible not to think of you as a people. It is impossible not to think about the entire nation of Estonia and all the Baltic States! How can we not think of your part in the Singing Revolution, or in the human chain of two million people extending from here to Vilnius? You know what it is to struggle for freedom; you can identify with that people. We would do well, then, to listen to what God says to Moses, in order to discern what he is saying to us as a people.

At the beginning of the 13th century, Estonia was conquered by the German Teutonic Order and Christianized by force. Some archaeological evidence suggests that Christianity was known in the centuries prior to the conquest. Based on archaeological relics, such as crosses and metal book corners, some area of Estonia have been Christian.
