Pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Street Church in Alberta, Canada was arrested on Saturday for holding a church service that allegedly defied public health orders.

Pawlowski was arrested along with his brother, Dawid, and both have been charged with organizing an “illegal in-person gathering,” in addition to “requesting, inciting or inviting others” to join them, the Calgary Police Service said in a statement.

“It is important to understand that law enforcement recognizes people’s desire to participate in faith-based gatherings as well as the right to protest. However, as we find ourselves in the midst of a global pandemic, we all must comply with public health orders in order to ensure everyone’s safety and wellbeing,” the statement said.
