A strange silence has descended over places of worship throughout the country and many parts of the world in the midst of the deadliest pandemic since the Spanish Flu of 1918. Eddie lives on the cathedral grounds. He says it has now become a lonely place. Churches have had to close their doors, with national lockdown level 4 still prohibiting gatherings and ordering people to adhere to physical distancing. Dean Michael Weeder is streaming sermons to his congregation from the Deanery during these challenging times.
