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.”
