All over the world we are affected by the Coronavirus epidemic. This invite me to entrust ourselves to one another under the protection of the Virgin Mary. We see the importance of solidarity with our loved ones, our communities, homes and also a solidarity and communion of the universal Church.
In this context, I want to inform you of the closeness of the IMS which has quickly taken all the necessary steps to continue its services.
Today when some of you will be isolated or even weakened, know that the staff of the Sections remain mobilized to accompany you. In response to the pandemic, the Association has put in place plans to allow you to remain in contact with your IMS reference persons via electronic and telephone means. The teams are teleworking ; in order to gain connectivity and enable you to obtain your assistance, requests for reimbursement can now be sent by email.

As for this virus, prevention is essential. As an extension of the support given to superiors and bishops, I urge you to respect the preventive measures already in place within the Sections. We thought you might find this document useful : Some practical information about COVID-19.. Please feel free to distribute it widely.
