Resumption of Public Worship in Accordance with the EMERGENCY POWERS (COVID-19 Pandemic) (AMENDMENT) ORDER, 2020
FROM THE OFFICE OF THE ARCHBISHOP
September 2, 2020
In accordance with the Emergency Powers (COVIC-19 Pandemic) (Amendment) Order, 2020 (Paragraph 4), we are able to resume public worship in our parishes. The Emergency Powers Order indicates that the Bahamas Christian Council Re-Opening Guidelines are to be followed.
However, please pay particular attention to our Archdiocesan Guidelines, which are much more detailed and more suited to the requirements of our worship tradition. All these have been attached for your ease of reference.
The resumption of worship has immediate effect. However, parishes may need to take the time to make the necessary preparation in order to be able to resume worship this weekend (Saturday, September 5 and Sunday, September 6, 2020).
This does not affect the current protocols regarding Funerals and Weddings.
