Suspended Church Services

March 26th, 2020|0 Comments

Following advice from Central Church in Dublin, we regrettably have to suspend all church services and church meetings with immediate effect – this suspension will include all external groups who use our premises.

The current climate within which we are living is causing many to be filled with fear, anxiety and a measure of hysteria – we are calling our people to have faith, cool heads and kind hearts.

Trust that God is with each one of us as we traverse a rapidly changing landscape.

Remain calm and level-headed as we hold our government, those in authority and our emergency services in prayer.

Show generosity towards one another as we look beyond ourselves and our needs and keep a kind eye on those who are more vulnerable than ourselves.

Updates on how we will be responding to this developing situation will be posted regularly.

The Cathedral has a missions link with the Diocese of Maridi in South Sudan, led by their Bishop, The Rt Rev Moses Zungo.

The following is the first article in a series of 3 which gives a taste of what life is like in Maridi as they face the Covid-19 virus on top of years of civil war which has resulted in 400,000 people losing their lives and 4 million being displaced from their homes.

The context

There are not many places less able to deal with a pandemic than South Sudan. The world's youngest country ranks 186 out of 189 on the Human Development Index and is the only country to see negative growth in its HDI score since 2010. South Sudan is one of the poorest countries in the world with very poor economic practice and very high level of corruption. The majority of its citizens are not employed. The health and economic infrastructure in the country is far below average capacity to provide for its citizens.

Your brothers and sisters in South Sudan are now experiencing the coronavirus as a crisis on top of a crisis. Even before coronavirus, many communities in South Sudan lacked basic needs – last year alone, nearly 7 million people were regularly going hungry and over 5 million didn’t have any access to safe water. Not having enough food, or clean water to wash hands, makes the coronavirus a devastating threat to families in South Sudan.

Three quarters of the population in South Sudan don't have access to healthcare and in a country of 11 million people it only has 4 ventilators for treating acute Covid-19 symptoms. When the first case was declared the whole country was horrified. People had hoped they might be spared. But once they found out it was there the mood in the country changed. Everyone is talking about Covid-19 and how it will impact them.

The Church in Maridi

The Church in Maridi is, in many respects, the provider of healthcare, support and a vital means of communicating information vital for residents’ safety and well being. One of the strongest parts of the church family in Maridi is the many branches of the Mothers’ Union and their work has been crucial in living through the turmoil of years of civil war and now through the crisis of the Covid-19 virus.

The Mothers’ Union are pictured making face masks for use in the Bethsaida Clinic and Maridi Hospital as healthcare workers are provided with vital PPE as they deal with the virus as frontline workers.

First aiders and evangelists are carrying the crucial message of personal hygiene into more remote areas of the Diocese. Food containers are being used to assist with the practice of washing hands, so important in preventing the spread of the virus.

Impact of your financial support to the Diocese.

The Cathedral has committed to give £750 per month to our brothers and sisters in Maridi each month, something which will be reviewed on a monthly basis. On top of this, individuals and families from the Cathedral family have given £2180 to support our family in Maridi.

Bishop Moses writing of our financial support for him and his people says the following, “Your brothers and sisters in the Diocese of Maridi, have received your financial support with tears in their eyes expressing their joy that you are able to extend the hand of help to your brothers and sisters who are in need in Maridi.”

The soaps are great support for the personal hygiene of the church workers as well as a preventive measure taken against coronavirus. The containers of the oil are serving two purposes in the family of the pastor. After eating the oil from the containers, the containers will remained as hand-washing items for prevention of Corona in the Family of the pastors. They were able to train 18 members of first aiders to involve in spreading the information of Coronavirus to the local communities besides the efforts of Bethsaida Clinic.
