Silent Praise group reaches out online
The coronavirus pandemic has tested the faith community in many obvious ways.
One less highlighted factor has been the impact that the lockdown and social-distancing has had on young people within the church.
Students across the island have had to adapt to a “new normal” which stripped them of everything they were used to: physically going to school and church, spending time with their peers, extracurricular activities — all of it came to an abrupt halt.
Silent Praise, a sign language group at the Bermuda Institute, decided to transition classes online.
It proved to be a blessing during the last few months of change and uncertainty as some students struggled with the domino effects of the pandemic.
