A priest in the Catholic Diocese of Torit Fr. Martin Funi is calling on Christians to follow the covid-19 guidelines directed by World Health Organization or WHO and Ministry of Health.
 
He was talking during a live talk show in the good morning Eastern Equatoria program in Radio Emmanuel 89 in Torit.
 
Fr Funi said it is the mandate of the church to abide by the guidelines so as to prevent the spread of the novel corona virus.
 
“The faithful should respect these guidelines to prevent the spread of covid19. So the church applies these same guidelines in executing its functions like any other institutions so as not to disrupt its activities. There should be no temptation of comparing which one is better the guideline of WHO as presented by the health ministries and the one of the church that comparison is not necessary and not even valid because essentially it is the same medical guideline which the church applies to execute its duties”, the priest advised.
 
Fr. Funi said work in both the church and other organizations have not stopped since staff work either from home or in their offices.
 
He said the church offers spiritual and pastoral services such as anointing the sick on specific conditions to limit risk of infecting another during this pandemic of the corona virus
 
“People continue working either from home or in shift during this covid19 which means work is continuing but under different conditions or creative arrangement. There are specific spiritual and pastoral services that are available to the faithful and they must know the kind that is available during this covid19. For instant the anointing of the sick can still be requested and administered under specified conditions that minimize or exclude the risk of infection”, Fr Funi said.
 
The Catholic priest made the remarks during Radio Emmanuel talk show in Torit Catholic Diocese.
