The COVID-19 outbreak has brought many of our ministries to a grinding halt. In the span of one week, many of us went from choir rehearsals and fish fries to self-quarantine and confusion.
This portion of our website is meant to be a collective spot for all resources we find each day. In the peak of the situation, this page will be updated almost daily.

The pandemic of COVID-19 is a situation of great concern to the NPM National Office. Like many of you, we are monitoring the situation closely. We are also following safety protocols laid out by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Our staff will be working from their homes with full access to phone & email through March 22nd. Office hours will be Monday-Friday, 9-5pm ET.
With that being said, our 2020 NPM-sponsored events are proceeding as planned (National Convention; One Call Institute; Guitar & Ensemble Institute).
The health of our membership is our highest priority, and we will continue to monitor the situation as it progresses.
Please consult with your local dioceses about best practices with your community.
We will bring you updates via social media and email communications.
We will also forward any updates from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) regarding liturgical permissions in potential cases where the liturgy might be live-streamed or broadcast virtually.
Be safe and stay well.
