On Friday, January 24, the Chinese Ministry Steering Team met to discuss the recent outbreak of the coronavirus that started in Wuhan, China and how it might affect the Knox Chinese New Year party scheduled for Saturday, February 1. It was decided, in order to protect the Chinese community as well as everyone at Church, that the Chinese New Year party will be cancelled/postponed.
It was a difficult decision to make as a lot of preparation work had been done and many of our congregation and friends were planning to attend this most important celebration party. However, due to the uncertainty of the situation and the number of guests travelling to/from China, the Steering Team has cancelled/postponed this party with the hope of reducing the possibility of transmission of viruses. Many other Chinese groups in Toronto have cancelled celebration activities in this Chinese New Year season for the same reason.
Thanks to the Steering Committee for their thoughtfulness and caring concern for everyone.
