Dear Congregation,

Managing Committee met on March 17th and discussed the COVID-19 situation and its impact to our church family.

We have made a decision to celebrate Holy Qurbana with only a priest and needed acolytes until April 1. In order to adhere to the current guidance of the CDC to keep any gathering to less than 10 people, we request the rest of our faithful to refrain from coming to church until further notice. (This includes all activities i.e. evening prayers and Sunday Service) When possible, we will arrange for live-streaming as was done on March 15th.

For those in need that wish to receive Holy Qurbana, please contact Samuel Achen and he will explore arrangements to come to you.

We will be monitoring the situation carefully and will update everyone on or before April 1. Please continue to adhere to your local health department guidance, as well as the CDC.

Let us continue to pray for all those affected by the virus and those who are assisting to combat this pandemic.

St. Thomas LA - Managing Committee 2020
