My dear Franciscans
We are all aware that we are dealing with an evolving situation in which we are all making important decsions for ourselves as events unfold daily.
Until further notice we will not have any group meetings at the church. This means the choir, Lent Bible Study, knitting group, Friday Study group, the various commitees, Saturday meditation and other groups will not be meeting. Could you please communicate this on all WhatsApp groups.
Please be safe. Be calm. Know that we are in God’s care.
We are in the very early stages of working out how to keep our sense of community going. If you have any suggestions please don’t hesitate to let us know.
We are looking at doing Church Unusual on Facebook Live at 8.30 am on Sundays and podcasting it on our social media.
The problem is people without the right technology will of course not be able to participate. But we are working on this.
The very nature of Lent is to live differently for 40 days. As Bishop Steve suggested we are in an intensified Lent. Let’s ask God’s grace to use this as an opportunity to pray and reflect and grow our relationship with God.
May Lent be with you.
