Amid Coronavirus Pandemic, Kazan Congregation Shares Communion Spoon

The coronavirus pandemic did not deter the faithful from attending a service at the Church of Our Lady of Tikhvin in Kazan, Russia. Many of the Orthodox Christian Kryashen-Tatars attending the mass on March 15 took communion from the same spoon. Medical experts have warned that sharing bodily fluids like saliva would most likely spread the coronavirus. Members of the congregation in Russia’s Republic of Tatarstan were allowed to take communion from an individual cup if they wished.
