Good afternoon dear friends of
Women of the Word - Toronto
Today is March 12, 2020 and the last few weeks have been overwhelming with all the news regarding COVID-19 in Canada and across the world. WOW-T has been monitoring the updates from the Civil Authorities for COVID-19 on a daily basis for guidance here in the GTA.
The Federal and Provincial Civil Authorities have provided assessments regarding the public health risk associated with COVID-19 and large mass gatherings.
Regretfully, as per the directives issued by the PHAC and Ontario Health officials, we are informing you that Women of the Word - Toronto has decided to cancel our
"I'm Not Perfect, You're Not Perfect, but it's OK" Forum scheduled for Saturday, April 18th at the Royalton Hospitality Inc.
We apologize to each of you who were devoted to attending our event. However, we are socially committed and dedicated to ensuring the well-being of all of our guests and our community at large, as we must decrease the risk to the possibility of exposure to COVID-19 (Corona virus).
This was a heartbreaking decision for us to make and normally our tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable, however, based on these unique circumstances tickets will be refunded.
Women of the Word - Toronto is a not-for-profit organization and will need to assume the burden of costs we have incurred in organizing this event. We hope, pray, and trust that God will call generous hearts to donate whatever they can to help WOW-T carry out this very difficult decision.
On April 18th, we will not be together as we had planned, but please let us be united in prayer, to ask God for His mercy, for all those in Toronto, Canada and throughout the world who have been exposed or are impacted by this virus.
We want to remember those who have died, those who are ill, and those who continue to dedicate their efforts to protect all of us and especially the most vulnerable: the elderly and those with compromised immune systems. We pray that the Lord will guide the scientists and researchers to soon find a vaccine for this disease. We know that Christ's love will prevail in all of the fear and suffering.
The WOW-T committee will remember each and every one of you and your intentions in a virtual rosary @ 9:00 am on Saturday, April 18th.
We look forward to seeing you at our next event on October 25, 2020 -- we will post details for this event after April 18th on our website: Women of the Word Toronto WOW Blessings Toronto and all of our social media sites:
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. Any individual who has purchased a ticket(s) through the website may contact Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With love and gratitude,
The Women of the Word - Toronto Committee
