We are sad to report three new cases, and very sadly one new death. We mourn with our families who have lost a loved one. This is so profoundly sad for our community.  Please take a moment to say a prayer for them, for their families, for all our healthcare workers, first responders, essential personnel, and for our community. In solidarity and in support of them, and in remembrance of our lost, please join us in putting lights in your windows or outdoors to light up our neighborhoods  through this crisis in the fight against COVID-19.
