Catholic churches in NYC reopen with social-distancing measures

Catholic churches in Brooklyn and Queens shuttered for months due to the coronavirus outbreak reopened on Tuesday with some changes — including social-distancing signage and mandatory masks.

Worshipers in protective face coverings flocked to pews, at a maximum of 10 at a time, and some were even spotted donning plastic gloves as they prayed.

Diocese of Brooklyn Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio gave his blessing for churches, closed since March 20, to open for private prayer and devotion, with 6-feet social-distancing regulations being maintained.

DiMarzio also granted permission to start holding funerals, baptisms and weddings, also with a strict maximum of 10 people and mandatory masks. Mass is still being streamed online.

At least two houses of worship, Immaculate Heart of Mary in Kensington and Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Sunset Park, plastered bright yellow police-style “CAUTION” tape to keep people a safe distance apart.

“I know it may look like a crime scene, or a construction site . . . but, it is a sign that light is at the end of the tunnel!” Immaculate Heart of Mary wrote on Facebook, announcing it will now be open daily from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for private prayer.

Numerous yellow warnings also reminded parishioners to “maintain social distancing” of at least 6 feet.

“Social Distancing is a MUST!” the church stressed on Facebook, outlining other rules including “sanitize your hands frequently” and “No Touching the Statues!”

At Our Lady of Perpetual Help, at least a dozen worshipers cycled through in just 30 minutes between 11:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., with a staffer escorting people to specific seats a safe distance apart.

Another church, Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph in Prospect Heights, used more subdued signs to split up seating areas, including for families, couples and those coming to pray on their own. They also tacked on blue tape to pews to the mark 6-feet distance.

The precautions are being taken “to provide atmosphere that everyone can feel safe coming to church,” said Msgr. Kieran Harrington, the rector at the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph.

“Some people will be scared, and we want to let them see that the church is a place where you can feel safe to come and to pray and to be with others,” he told The Post.

Patriotic Poles led astray by mis-labelled Ukrainian cucumbers

(Reuters) – The U.S. Department of Justice is closing probes into three U.S. senators over stock trades made shortly before the coronavirus market turmoil, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday, citing people familiar with the matter.

The three senators include Republicans Kelly Loeffler of Georgia and James Inhofe of Oklahoma, and Democrat Dianne Feinstein of California, the Journal reported, adding that prosecutors are alerting their defense attorneys about the closing of the probes.

However, the DOJ’s related probe into Senator Richard Burr is continuing, according to the newspaper.

Representatives for Burr, the DOJ and the FBI declined to comment.

The senators were investigated over selling large amounts of stock before the coronavirus-induced market meltdown and after closed-door briefings on the outbreak this year.

NYC sexual assault victim has no chance of survival: ADA

NYC sexual assault victim has no chance of survival: ADA

A 64-year-old woman who was left in a vegetative state following a vicious attack and rape in East Harlem is not expected to recover, The Post has learned.

The woman, whose name was not released, has survived this long only due to life support equipment and is expected to die within days, Manhattan ADA Justin McNabney said at the arraignment of her alleged attacker, Frankie Harris.

The violent assault, which was captured on camera, occurred at East 111th Street near 2nd Avenue just before 11:30 p.m. May 18 — when the creep allegedly put the woman in a chokehold for three minutes, pulled her to the ground and raped her, according to authorities. 

Harris, 38, of Bushwick, was arrested over the weekend and charged with attempted murder, rape and sexual abuse in connection with the attack, cops said.

When cops questioned Harris, he told detectives he’d met the woman one night in Manhattan and had consensual sex — but denied being involved in the attack, according to McNabney.

Harris switched up his story when cops showed him the surveillance footage from the assault, telling detectives he did not have sex with the woman — but was instead trying to revive her by lying atop her after watching a Puerto Rican man choke her, McNabney said.

Cops also connected Harris to the videos by a black tuxedo jacket that he picked up earlier in the night and was still wearing when he was arrested in the 83rd Precinct on a pair of bench warrants, according to McNabney.

In one of the warrants, Harris was accused of slapping a woman’s butt in Harlem, the ADA said.

This suspect approached a 64-year-old female victim from behind, placed her in a choke hold, and knocked her to the ground.

In the separate warrant, Harris allegedly punched a Hispanic woman in the mouth and spat on another Hispanic woman after threatening to kill Puerto Ricans in Brooklyn.

He was charged with felony assault as a hate crime and forcible touching in the separate cases.
