Many churches in the country were closed yesterday due to the COVID-19 restriction on mass gatherings.

Families saw it as an opportune time to worship as a family at home.

Churches across the country had also provided online live worship platforms for their members.

The Tauleka family of Cunningham Stage 1 were among the many Fijians who made use of the televised live coverage of the Sacred Heart Cathedral 9am Mass led by Archbishop Peter Loy Chong. It was broadcasted on Fiji TV.

Josefa Tauleka said not much had changed for his family’s Sunday ritual since the restriction on mass gathering were imposed.

He said on the bright side, families got to spend more quality time together.

“Many times we are away in churches and work, spending more time there, but fail to realise it is taking away quality family time,” Mr Tauleka said.

“A blessing in disguise with COVID-19 is that it has ensured that we spend more quality time with family,” he said.

“The world is fast evolving and in this time of slowdown we are being spiritually awakened, we are able to reflect as a family, rejuvenate and move together as a family.”

He said families must follow precautionary measures put in place by the Government on COVID-19.

“Talk about it as a family, ensure that your family is following through all measures to prevent getting the virus. Everyone has a part to play and this is the time to do it.”
