Call to Prayer: Coronavirus – COVID 19

C eventMonday, 30 March 2020

I hope and pray that this message will find you in good health.

As you are aware, the global situation has worsened as the COVID-19 outbreak suddenly turned into a pandemic. It seems the entire world engine will have to slow-down for a few weeks and get realigned for a healthy restart.

Now the effort to minimize the spread of this pandemic is the paramount priority for all of us. We have therefore postponed the canonical visit to the Province of East Africa and the session for the Young sisters preparing for their final vows to be held at Auteuil. We will let you know if and when they are possible. Our parish priest announced that there would be no Mass for the public in our chapel. The Marie Eugenie Centre will also remain closed until 15 April, 2020.

Amid the rising cases of coronavirus affecting people globally, let us take all precautions to take care of ourselves and others, especially our elderly and sick sisters and people. Let us join hands with the millions from all religions and pray for all those who are affected by Coronavirus, especially the lonely and less privileged ones, for the doctors, nurses and medical experts ministering to the sick, and for the scientists who are searching for vaccines and remedies to contain the virus and stop its transmission. May I suggest to all the communities to say the Novena of Saint Marie Eugenie against COVID-19.
