Coronavirus heading

The Pacific Centre for Discipleship Association is closely following advisories from the Minister of Health, Provincial Health Officer, and the BC Centre for Disease Control in our response to the state of emergency prompted by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As we pray for the brave women and men providing essential services in our community, we are taking the following actions at 4000 West 11th Avenue:

  1. The Point Grey Inter-Mennonite Fellowship has suspended worship services in the chapel until further notice.
  2. Signs have been posted in and around the Menno Simons Centre, reminding residents and guests to wash their hands, not to touch their faces, keep their distance, and stay home & seek help if sick.
  3. Additional paid daily cleaning duties have been instituted.
  4. Monthly community meals normally open to alumni and friends have been suspended, and the weekly gatherings for residents in the building are limited to 26 or fewer people.
  5. Residents and the Residence Coordinators are caring for each other, providing emotional and spiritual support during this time of stress and uncertainty as university classes and social activities have all been cancelled. If any resident exhibits symptoms that indicate a potential for COVID-19 infection, all appropriate medical protocols will be followed.

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” ~ Isaiah 41:10
