5. Masking Strongly Recommended Indoors 

Because of the ongoing stress on our hospitals, Bishop Andrew Asbil has issued an important memo “strongly recommending the wearing of masks in indoor public settings, including in our church buildings.” He concludes his plea with these words: “As we come to the end of another difficult year, may God grant that we not tire of caring for our neighbours, but rather work toward the Reign of Christ when all will be reconciled in Him and in true wholeness of health.”
