How are your church leaders handling this Coronavirus? Talking about Protestants and Orthodox Christians.
For me, Sunday Mass has been cancelled until further notice. And with the CDC coming out and requesting all events over 50 people to be cancelled for the next 8 weeks, I may not see Mass for quite sometime. This is disheartening, but I get it. We have a large elderly population in the Church and are obligated to protect them.
Catholics, if you are in a similar situation, are you still going to confession? I need to go but did not because I saw the letter from our Bishop and figured it would not be available. And even if it is, there may be a line of people and we put ourselves at risk in there. So it just feels awkward. I actually wonder if they wont start hearing confessions via Skype or something. Sounds ridiculous on the surface, but given the circumstances and potential of this virus, I don’t think it’s that far fetched.
