S. Side pastor Trotter tests positive for coronavirus
South Side pastor Bishop Larry Trotter has tested positive for the coronavirus, a spokesman for the religious leader said Tuesday.
“While we were deeply saddened to hear this, we were yet encouraged that our pastor was in great spirits and looked exceptionally well,” spokesman Sean Howard said. “He has experienced very few symptoms and has expressed complete confidence that within 14 days, the Lord will allow him to return to the pulpit via virtual services.”
Trotter, pastor of Sweet Holy Spirit Church of Chicago, is stressing the importance of getting tested for the virus, Howard said.
“During this entire pandemic, he has always advocated to the general public as well as to the Sweet Holy Spirit membership the importance of being tested,” Howard said. “We thank God that he took that approach for himself and we are confident as well of his complete healing.”
