WEARING OF MASKS IN CHURCH
We recommend that for the time being, it is better that Masks be worn in the Church.
If this causes particular difficulties for you, this recommendation does not apply.

 

 

It is most important that people with any symptoms that might suggest Covid-19 infection, should stay at home . The same applies to those who have been in recent contact with someone who has the virus, in accordance with public health advice.

 

 

Dear Friends,

We find ourselves in a truly unique and different situation, which will have its effect on each of us in many ways. We only miss the ordinary when it is removed from us. For all there is a sense of loss and sadness, of uncertainty and anxiety, most of all about our health and the protection of those we love and care for. This is why we must observe to the finest detail all the practices which protect against infection.
There will be many practical concerns, espe...cially for young parents - the care of their children, balancing the demands of work, concerns about the family income. Clearly people worry about the food supply, in spite of all reassurances to the contrary. Sometimes the problem of panic can in itself create a bigger problem. Someone said: 'There is enough for everyone's need, but not for everyone's greed.'
Beyond all health and material concerns, the present crisis confronts us with our vulnerability, the fragility of human existence and our fear of death. This is always there, always a reality, but most of the time we do not have to face it. Most of the time we live on trust which is always the best basis for a peaceful life. St. Julian of Norwich summed up this trusting mentality with the words: 'All will be well, and all will be well, and all manner of things will be well.'
But sometimes, as in this time, our trust is put to the test in a new way. May the challenge of this time bring out the best in us. And may the God of love deliver us from anything that would deprive us of the life he wants for us.
Fr. Pat.
