As the coronavirus outbreak is a cause a great deal of pain and fear, we encourage every good-natured person to display strong spiritual resistance. We call on everyone to work together, through dialogue and in a spirit of mutual respect, to preserve the good of peaceful coexistence and cooperation, both to protect our community against the spread the virus and to protect us from practices that reinforce fear and the division of society.
For this reason, following our memorial service this morning and after the final blessing of Divine Liturgy, we have invited faith leaders from various traditions to join us in seeking divine mercy. We will welcome them and allow them to offer a short prayer from their own tradition and in their own language.
In all our services we come together to pray for the common good of the local and world community. Today, with this unique effort we will join with those of our wider community in seeking God’s mercy.
Following the offering of prayers, for our Orthodox parishioners (as well as guests who wish to participate) we will dismiss as usual with the distribution of the antidoron (blessed bread), and then enjoy coffee and refreshments together in the large hall.
