You do not have to miss out on all the Easter services this year despite being in lock down.
In these trying times, churches across the world are doing their best to ensure that followers are able to actively engage in church services and the Easter spirit from the comfort and safety of their homes.
Now is the perfect time to set up yiayia’s Facebook account!
Fr Efraim from the Church of Saint Vasilios in Brunswick says he has received many calls from people’s parents and grandparents who expressed disappointment and sadness of not being able to attend their regular Easter church services.
The church asks for “younger people to assist their elders to set them up with access to live streaming of services on Facebook.”
