In recent days some of the Covid19 restrictions have been listed and we are moving towards what is often being referred to as a ‘new normal’. This presents us, as Church, parish and community with challenges and opportunities. Among the challenges will be how we will be able to celebrate our public sacraments again taking into account social distancing and sanitising guidelines.
Over the next few weeks we will be introducing social distancing markers in both our churches following the 2m department of health official guidance. Signage will also be put in place as soon as it becomes available.
According to the government roadmap we should be able to have more people in the church for funerals after June 8th. We hope that the government may at the same time provide some movement regarding the celebration of baptisms.
Although we have no clear indication of when we will resume public Masses and other ceremonies, according to the government roadmap, the pastoral council is continuing to work to plan for the future and we will continue to keep you updated.
In the meantime the pastoral area has set up a new webcam that will be used to celebrate a variety of liturgies and other activities such as scripture reflections, extended adoration of the blessed sacrament, etc. As restrictions lift it is hoped that as many prayer groups or music teams might come forward to make use of the facility. Details of connections can be found on the webcam page.
