Archbishop issues precautionary measures regarding Coronavirus

With confirmed cases of Coronavirus now within the boundaries of the Diocese, Archbishop George today issued the following precautionary measures for immediate effect:

  • The usual handshake at the Sign of Peace should not be given. If the Sign of Peace does take place, a bow or cursory nod of the head will be sufficient during this time.
  • The offering of the Chalice at Holy Communion is suspended until further notice.
  • The Holy Water stoups should be emptied in order to limit the possibility of cross infection.
