Virtual Prayer Sessions Held Daily
Because of the COVID-19 health crisis, the Baha’i House of Worship in Whilmette, USA and Welcome Center are closed until it is deemed safe to open the doors once again. Staff members are working remotely and decided to move the daily 12:30 p.m. devotional programs to Zoom. The first virtual devotional program was held on Sunday, March 22 and more than 65 people attended. “We were very pleased that so many people joined us”, explained Chris Vodden, Director of the Baha’i House of Worship Activities Office, “especially on such short notice, since we just posted an announcement on Facebook at about 10:00 a.m. this morning! That’s the beauty of social media.”
The virtual devotional gatherings will be held every day at 12:30 p.m. CDT (1:30 p.m. Eastern, 10:30 a.m. Pacific) at: https://zoom.us/j/894428842.
