Trinity Episcopal cancels services over COVID-19 concerns

The Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese has ordered the cancellation of services for Episcopal churches this weekend and next.

The Rev. Ken Ritter of Trinity Episcopal sent the following message to parishioners Friday night.

“Dear parishioners:

“By order of the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Mississippi, and due to the spread of the corona virus, all worship services are hereby cancelled this weekend and next weekend.

“Therefore, this Sunday’s services (3/15) are hereby cancelled, as are next Sunday’s services (3/22).

“Stations of the cross on this Monday (3/16), and Wednesday’s Healing Service and the Lenten Bible Study (3/18) are also cancelled in accordance with the Bishop’s decision.

“The Bishop states that he is taking this action out of an abundance of caution due to the fear and uncertainty of the corona virus.

“Any Non-essential gatherings of Trinity Church are hereby suspended until further notice.

“As cases of the Corona Virus (Covid-19) in Mississippi increase, do please be safe and take appropriate precautions.

“May almighty God bless us and keep us.

Please let Fr. Ken know if there are any pastoral needs at frken@trinitynatchez.org or at 225-317-4209.”
