The good news for our Praise Cathedral congregation attended in-person services is that no attendee at Praise has contracted COVID-19 while we returned to socially-distanced services from September. The bad news is that COVID-19 cases in Peel Region have grown sharply, and the Region has been ordered by the Premier to restrict religious gathering to a maximum of 10 people. Therefore, we are returning to virtual services only. effective November 29 until further notice.
COVID-19 remains a deadly threat. We can become infected in the second wave as easily as the first. The serious and lingering after-effects of the virus are now becoming clear. There will never be a ‘right time’ to let down our guard, during this period. Individually, as families, and as groups of friends, we need to remain vigilant, and in many cases, remain apart. It’s hard. We miss each other. But it’s necessary. If the world could manage to wear masks, socially distance, and practice frequent hand-washing during the Spanish Flu epidemic a century ago – without modern medicine and today’s computer technology – then we surely can do as well ourselves in the 21st century as we await a vaccine from modern medicine.
