Said Rev. Fr. G. J. Anthonysamy, Rector and Parish priest of San Thome Cathedral,” To avoid the Corona virus spread, no official functions or Mass will be held at our church till March 31. We have taken the decision following the advice of Rev. Dr. George Antonyswamy, Archbishop of Madras – Mylapore. We have also announced the same to the public.”
However, the Church will be kept open for people who may want to come and pray, he says.
Masses though will be beamed online on San Thome TV and Madha TV.
A church volunteer at Our Lady of Guidance Church, Lazarus Church Road confirmed that Masses have been suspended till the end of this month.
