Darmstadt – The Evangelical Church in Hesse and Nassau does not fundamentally exclude contacts of pastors or pastors in old people’s or nursing homes. “All pastors are encouraged to see what contacts are possible on site,” said Church President Volker Jung on Tuesday, also with a view to the Easter holidays. However, this must be clarified with the facilities. The possibility exists, however, if the situation permits. “This has to be regulated carefully.”
Churches would not be opened for services over Easter. There are big differences, for example, from the situation in supermarkets, where people could keep their distance. “I think it is irresponsible to say:” Find forms to celebrate services “.” The EKHN area also extends to parts of Rhineland-Palatinate.
