Navy cancels Catholic Masses at area bases while other religious services continue

(Tribune News Service) — Catholic  Masses at San Diego-area Navy bases have ended  because the Navy, in what it says  is a cost-cutting move, has declined to renew  its contracts with  Catholic priests, and there are not enough Catholic chaplains on active duty to fill the void.

Protestant services on bases, which are led by active duty chaplains, will continue,  said Brian O'Rourke, a Navy Region Southwest spokesman. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/navy-cancels-catholic-masses-at-area-bases-while-other-religious-services-continue-1.643978

      WASHINGTON — A federal judge revoked the pretrial release for a Navy reservist awaiting trial on charges stemming from the Jan. 6 Capitol riot last week following his conviction in Virginia for possessing unregistered silencers. U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden ordered Hatchet Speed, of McLean, Virginia, back into custody on Friday after a jury in the Eastern District of Virginia convicted him earlier this month of possessing multiple silencers disguised to look like cleaning supplies.
