The government of Uganda today 18. March 2020, has suspended with immediate effect, Church services for a period of one month. “Lord have Mercy!”. This is due to the worldwide outbreak of the deadly CoronaVirus COVID-19 that has sofa claimed a multitude of lives internationally.
This announcement was made by His Excellency President of the Republic of Uganda, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. Other suspended activities included schools, weddings and all public gatherings for a period of 32 days.
For as long as this suspension persists, the Church will use available Digital Media means/platforms to share spiritual content with the Orthodox faithful within and abroad!
We request to maintain constant prayer during this Lent period so that the mercy of our Lord and Saviour Jesus can be with us as we struggle to fight against the deadly Virus.
