Lahore: A special Eucharistic Mass was held in the Catholic Cathedral, Lahore where the main celebrant was His Grace Archbishop Sebastian Francs Shaw. The Eucharistic Mass was offered for all the Coronavirus victims in the world. His Grace Archbishop Sebastian Francs Shaw said that it is the time for repentance and to get rid of materialism. He further stated that we must ask pardon from the Lord. A Candle of Hope was also lit during the Eucharistic Mass with this hope and faith so that the Lord may redeem us from this deadly virus.

After the Eucharistic Mass a graceful ceremony was held in order to respond to the Coronavirus crisis in Pakistan. 15,000 facemasks and sanitizers were disturbed among the 8 districts of Archdiocese of Lahore by His Grace Archbishop Sebastian Francs Shaw.
