Per the directives in a press statement released by the Ghana Catholic Bishop’s Conference on Monday, March 16,2020 which said “daily private Masses should be offered for God’s intervention with not
more than five people in attendance”, this is who comprises the five and meaning of that statement.
It is a Mass by the Priest and possibly those in his rectory or mission house thus other priests in his residence.
The number five is to streamline the number of people allowed to attend the private mass in places where the mission house or religious community has more than five persons. It is not Mass with a privileged five in the parish.
It is during these private masses that live video can be streamed to reach parishioners.
