SECOND UPDATE: Power was restored Tuesday at 5:30 a.m., a nearly 80-hour outage. Our building is still closed, so most of our staff is working at home to produce today’s Daily News Report.
UPDATE: One day later, there is still no power for the USCCB. We will publish an abbreviated service for our clients on Tuesday.
Catholic News Service will be closed on
Monday, July 2, Monday, July 2, and Tuesday, July 3, due to a power outage in our offices at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in Washington. A powerful line of thunderstorms that came through the city on Friday evening knocked power out for millions of customers in the mid-Atlantic region. As of Sunday Monday evening, the power to the building was still out, and USCCB employees were told they would not be permitted to enter the building on Monday Tuesday.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for our clients, and we will keep you posted of further developments.
