The Catholic Church in Kisii has moved to prevent infections arising from the corona virus among the faithful by issuing a raft of measures and guidelines that are to be adhered to as the world grapples with the pandemic.
Speaking at St Vincent Pastoral Center in Kisii Town, Bishop Joseph Okemwa advised Fathers, Brothers and Sisters to be careful as they minister to the congregation in churches.
The clergy suspended adorations of blessed sacraments and convergence of large women groups on Thursdays.
Bishop Okemwa cancelled weddings ceremonies and ordered they be postponed until further notice.
He discouraged large masses during Sunday but instead advocated for small congregations.
He also appealed to families to involve only immediate members in funerals and adhere to social distancing during such events.
Bishop Okemwa underscored the need for Kenyans to observe guidelines laid down by the National Government in combating Covid-19.
