Responding to COVID-19

Web Statement

March 4, 2020

The role of churches, dioceses and compassionate Christians responding to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is to:

  1. Combat fear with knowledge in order to encourage preparedness and decrease stigma.

  2. Maintain operational continuity and continue worship life in the case of potential quarantine and disruption.

  3. Show God’s compassion and care to those in our communities who are affected.
