Official statement from Bishop Provenzano about the White House directive to open churches for public events

To all the People of God gathered in the Diocese of Long Island, the Episcopal Church in Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk:

Regardless of the misinformed and politically-motivated direction coming from the White House, the Church will continue to be the Church, caring for the safety of all people and protecting the health and well being of our parishioners. 

The Church will continue to be the Church and our buildings will remain closed until we can begin to safely gather in person.

We will continue to pray, worship, share in formation and education through online platforms, and other electronic communication. 

We will care for God’s people and minister to their needs and not put them at risk. 

We will honor the loyal and selfless dedication of our hospital workers and essential workers by avoiding reckless ideas and uninformed options in the face of medical science. 

St. Augustine taught us that God’s grace builds on nature. We will count on God’s grace and rely on sound science.

Dear Clergy and Members of the Diocese of Long Island,

This morning, the day after our commemoration of the Ascension of our Lord, I was brought to tears by a New York Times front page 12-minute online news video about the demanding and extraordinary coronavirus work by the medical and support team at our St. John’s Episcopal Hospital in Far Rockaway. 

We all have “read” about the devastating pandemic. The video powerfully shows us the cost to the victims of the disease and the cost to our hospital personnel.

As I sat and watched this report, I prayed “Lord have mercy” over and over again as tears ran down my face in gratitude for the selfless care of our doctors, nurses and staff, and in sorrow for the pain and anguish this virus inflicts on victims and their families.

I could not be prouder of our people at St John’s Episcopal Hospital. Regardless of their faith backgrounds, I see the gospel being lived out one patient at a time, one family at a time - over and over again. This is for real. “Lord Have Mercy” Amen.
