All Saints Cathedral issues strict wedding guidelines during coronavirus crisis

The All Saints Cathedral on Tuesday evening announced strict guidelines meant to protect its congregants from the deadly coronavirus which has become a global epidemic.

The Cathedral suspended its weekday and Sunday services in line with the government's directive on social distancing.

Those who had planned to carry out weddings at the church were advised to cancel or postpone the ceremonies for at least a month when the situation is expected to have been contained.

However, those who still wish to continue with the weddings are required to seek special permission and will be granted on the condition that the wedding does not last for more than 30 minutes and is not attended by more than ten people.

The same rule will apply to funerals where the clergy will be availed to mourn with the bereaved on the condition that the funeral ceremonies are not attended by more than ten people.

The main sanctuary at the All Saints Cathedral will remain open for individual prayers with the staff expected to maintain regular sanitation.

Other churches are expected to follow suit as the country prepares to tackle the coronavirus epidemic.
