Advisory for Ecclesial Year 2021-2022

Greetings in the Name of our Savior Jesus Christ!

In our last Advisory regarding the Worship Services during the pandemic, we said that our virtual services will continue up to May 2021. Given that the new Ecclesial year is just around the corner, the Ministerial Team took the time to consult our medical professionals on two important items:

  1. Advice on the vaccination for Covid 19.
  2. On the risk of exposure in relation to physical gathering for worship.

The responses from our doctors have yielded a clear consensus.

  1. Advice on the vaccination for Covid 19.

We SHOULD get vaccinated. Kindly consult your local LGUs and DOH recommendations on Vaccine roll-outs in your area. The general consensus is that the “best vaccine is what is available.”

  1. On the risk of exposure in relation to physical gathering for worship.

NO physical gatherings. We SHOULD continue with Virtual Services as face-to-face services will unnecessarily expose a lot of vulnerable groups to the virus.

Therefore, taking into account the shared wisdom of our medical professionals, the Church Council in its virtual meeting held on 3 April 2021 approves the recommendation of the Ministerial Team as follows:

A. That we follow the advice of our Medical Professionals and evaluate the situation every semester.
B. We shall continue with Virtual Services from June to November 2021.
