From the Archbishop\’s Desk – 18th April, 2021


  • ON THE COVID-19 VACCINE: We are all aware that different Covid-19 Vaccines have been discovered and are in circulation now. We are aware of the controversies that surround the vaccines at this time. We, however, see the vaccines coming out in record time as an indication that our prayer for an end to the coronavirus pandemic has not been in vain. We urge everyone to carefully consider receiving the vaccine and take their own wise decision looking at the example of such personalities as the Holy Father, the Pope. We pray the Lord to guide us as we go through the challenges of the time.  Meanwhile, we must continue to take the precautions of wearing of face masks, regular washing of hands, the use of sanitizers, maintaining physical distance, resisting the urge to touch our eyes and faces and observing the basic rules of hygiene. The virus is still with us even if it is not as virulent or as widespread as in other parts of the world and so we cannot afford to relax on the safety measures.
