Diocesan Policy Bans Weapons in Church and Parish Facilities
In light of the new state law that enables individuals to openly carry guns, Bishop Michael F. Olson has established a “Firearms and Weapons Policy”. The policy is effective immediately. The policy bans both firearms and weapons which are carried openly and firearms and weapons which are concealed. State mandated signs will be posted soon. The policy bans firearms and weapons in all diocesan locations, including churches, schools and all other facilities that are located on parish or diocesan sites.
