Dear Verbum Dei Missionary Family,
I hope that everyone is keeping safe and healthy. United with all the people all over the world, let us remain in prayer imploring the Lord for protection against the COVID-19 virus.
President Duterte has already announced the imposition of community quarantine in Metro Manila which will affect land, sea and air travel starting March 15, 2020 (midnight) to April 14, 2020 (Please read the directives provided by the government agencies). Contingency measures are being imposed to prevent the spread of the virus. This pronouncement will affect all our apostolic activities during the said period. Thus, we would like to cancel the following activities in the different communities we have in Luzon for now. This may need to be extended to Visayas and Mindanao in the light of upcoming pronouncements of the Church and the Government. The activities affected include:
We are planning to organize a virtual way of celebrating the Holy Week with daily guidelines and online retreat during the Holy Triduum. Please wait for the announcement on the coming days.
Let us remain vigilant and practice charity in these trying times and may Mother Mary keep our faith and hope alive. Let us not forget to pray for the healthcare workers who sacrifice themselves to help those afflicted with the virus and those on their way to recovery.
United in prayer,
Fraternidad Misionera Verbum Dei

Keep posted and wait for further notice.
