Under a new policy that goes into effect Friday, drinking will not be allowed at any event that is directed primarily toward minors. Archbishop Robert J. Carlson announced the change in a letter to parishioners last week. Now alcohol at games or other events directed toward minors “is not to be served to anyone or brought in by someone,” according to the letter.
