Father Spiridon Narsia, who serves in New York, tested positive for COVID-19, said the bishop of the eparchy of North America, Saba Intskirveli, said in a video message posted on social network.
“I would like to tell you the sad news that the second clergyman has been infected in our eparchy in New York. He is Father Spiridon Narsia. We do not know where he was infected, with whom he was in contact, although he did not serve last weekend and was undergoing treatment at home.
I would like to ask you to pray for him and to mention both Father Ioseb and Father Spiridon in your prayers.
This ordeal will be over, but it once again gives us an example of how we should treat one another and what responsibility we have for each other. We will endure any ordeal if we are responsible people”, - said the bishop Saba Intskirveli.
