Passion Week -2020

The situation arising out of the Covid-19 pandemic has disturbed our lifestyle. It has, in fact, affected life in every sphere. It is not easy to recall when was the last time we had to suspend church Sunday worship. But perhaps it has helped us to understand some home truths. The media has reported that churches have closed down in Odisha to ensure the spread of the disease is contained.

As we decided to suspend church worship till March 31 following request by the authorities  and realising the impact it will have in arresting the spread of the epidermic, a post by a brother succinctly brought out the truth. It read: ‘Churches are not being closed. Buildings are being closed. You are the church. You have to remain open.’ Since Lock down is on till April 14, 2020, the church will be closed till further orders. We celebrated the Passion Week online thanks to our Pastoral team of Rev. Dr. Ayub Chhinchani and Rev. Songram Keshari Singh who ministered God’s Word during this period online. We are extremely thankful to the Technical team of Deacon Mr. Sandeep Kumar, Mr. B. Arpan, Mr. Sanjay Samantaroy, Mr. Amit Nayak, Evg. Pratap Kumar Sahoo, Mr. Sovan Rout, and our Caretakers Mr. Sabhajan Pradhan and Mr. K.C. Digal for helping us in recording and streaming the messages online.
