ORANJESTAD – With the restrictions easing on the number of persons that can gather together churches are opening up for services. Freewinds Volunteer Ministers along with the Aruba Fire Department have been called on to assist.
It is impossible to quantify the amount of human upset and suffering that has been caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Now, perhaps more than ever, people will be looking to their churches as places for solace and inspiration.
One such place is the Immaculate Conception Church in Santa Cruz, where the firefighters and volunteer ministers were requested to sanitize the church in preparation for the fist mass being held after the stay at home order was lifted. The mass took place on Sunday 24 May.
During the sanitation process which was done last week, Father Jairo Maduro was introduced to the Stay Well booklet “How to Keep Yourself and Others Well”. After reviewing the booklet Father Maduro realized this information needs to be in the hands of his parishioners and requested 1,000 booklets. He was very appreciative saying, “Thank you so much. We are so glad to have you people here working this morning to clean the church. Again thanks a lot for this very important material so people can know how to be safe every day. Thank you so much!”
During the mass the booklets were introduced by Father Maduro and then handed out to the parishioners as they left the church.
