Many countries in the world are now taking measures to tackle the coronavirus pandemic.
In light of the current situation, it has been decided that the Oyasama Birth Celebration Service be attended only by the head ministers of directly supervised churches and the heads of dioceses, as in the case of the March Monthly Service and the Spring Memorial Service of Church Headquarters.
We would like to ask all other church head ministers as well as other Yoboku and followers to refrain from returning to Jiba to attend the Oyasama Birth Celebration Service and instead worship afar from their churches, fellowships, or their houses.
Please be advised that the Tea Service Center, the Information Center, the West Basement, the Wheelchair Ramp Entrance, and the elevators for people with disabilities will not be available during the Service. Also, the counseling session that is provided at the Main Sanctuary’s Attendants’ Room will not be available throughout the day.
