Fr Frank writes:
As I write this, I am contemplating what life may be like after 19th. For one thing, this may well be the last ‘emergency’ newsletter – Jane and I will have to remember old skills when it comes to producing the next ‘old style’ edition…….although it may take some time before the content builds up. In time, weekday Masses will be scheduled in the pre-pandemic fashion, including Saturday mornings followed by the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and our Eucharistic Ministers will once again be able to visit the sick and housebound. We will need to be patient, as it will inevitably take some time before things get back to how we remember them.
In all this, we are all aware that the virus has not gone away, and we need to remember to continue to take precautions. For this reason singing will be introduced slowly, ventilation will be maintained and I ask that you all continue to sanitize your hands and that you please WEAR FACE MASKS in order to keep others safe. More details will follow once they have been published by the Bishops’ Conference.
May our Risen, Ascended, and Glorified Lord bless you now and always.
The rector said to a young woman parishioner, “You know I pray for you every night.”
She replied: “I’m afraid it’s too late, rector, I’m already engaged.”
