Pastoral Letter from His Eminence Metropolitan JOSEPH Regarding COVID-19

We will soon draw to a close the fifteen-day period that we were asked to join in cooperation with our fellow citizens. We will be studying updated information from our parishes, civil authorities, and advisors in the fields of health and epidemiology in order to communicate next week our directives for Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and Pascha. At the same time, I have been in touch with the Department of Convention and Conference Planning, and unfortunately, we decided to cancel the parish life conferences this summer as we need time to cancel contracts with the various hotels.
