Virtual Prayer Sessions Held Daily
Traffic to the virtual prayers increased every day and on March 31 visitors topped 450 visitors at one time and 843 unique visitors from around the world!
Because of security concerns with the Zoom video conferencing platform, the virtual devotional program was moved to Facebook Live on April 3 and prayers were recited from the grounds of the House of Worship. “We were sad that we wouldn’t be able to hear prayers from visitors from around the world, which we had been able to do with Zoom,” explained Temple staff member, Ellen Price, “but at least through Facebook Live we are able to share prayers from the gardens of the House of Worship and viewers can leave comments.”
Staff are looking into alternative solutions. In the meantime, the virtual devotional gatherings will continue to be held daily at 12:30 p.m. Central, 1:30 p.m. Eastern, 10:30 a.m. Pacific (GMT-5).
