However, God is greater than any circumstance we might face and His perfect love casts out all fear. During times like this, we need to exercise wisdom and prudence. We are also called to pray, trust and serve those around us. We can serve others by taking the steps recommended by health authorities to prevent the spread of the virus. We can also assist those who are the most vulnerable. We have listed some links below to help you stay informed on the latest news about the virus.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. (Psalm 46:1–3)
