Our resident community continues to gather twice daily for spiritual practices. We pray for a swift end to the spread of COVID-19 and alleviation of the great suffering it is causing. We pray for all who are isolated, anxious or experiencing serious illness, and for all who are putting themselves at risk to care for others.

May you be well, may you be happy, may you be safe.
