Re-Affirmation: The United Church of Canada Supports COVID-19 Related Public Health Orders
January 29, 2021
As Epiphany turns to Lent, and we continue in pandemic wilderness walking, we acknowledge the grief and loss of fellowship that we are experiencing. As the United Church of Canada in the Pacific Mountain Regional Council, we affirm – again – that we are committed to following the health and safety orders from our provincial leadership.
We are aware of the legal challenges against the public health orders in the Province of BC, and we do not agree with that action. We continue to offer on-line worship for our communities of faith and adhere to guidelines for worship, funerals and weddings until directed otherwise by public health officials.
We draw your attention again to the letter of 30 November, 2020 from Pacific Mountain Regional Council Executive Minister, Treena Duncan, and President, Rev. S. Blair Odney: Statement in Support of Public Health Orders
