A MESSAGE FROM OA WORLD SERVICE OFFICE
WSO has published an announcement regarding Covid-19 that can be viewed at: https://oa.org/app/uploads/2020/03/OA-COVID-19-Letter-2.pdf
Our traditions are very clear, and WSO does not have the authority to require face to face meetings to close for the duration. We have but one authority – tradition 2, and each group must be allowed the autonomy to make this decision.
We are in no way minimizing the concern over the current situation, neither are we adding to the panic. We encourage our members and our groups to make the best decisions for themselves – guided by “a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience” as stated in tradition 2.
Setting up video conferencing for you group:
Hello everyone, with the COVID19 pandemic cause face to face group to close temporarily there has been a need to set up video conferencing facilities for our members.
