Dear Brothers & Sisters
Greetings from the Provincial Board.
Further to our previous correspondence we have been monitoring government advice and the developments in the Covid-19 pandemic. We are acutely aware that this is a very difficult time, and in many ways, we are in unchartered territory.
Being very mindful of our pastoral concern for one another we have decided to suspend all regular Church activities immediately, and this includes Sunday (and midweek) worship. We ask that you cancel any rentals and outside organisations from using your premises. We imagine that this suspension will remain in place until at least Easter, but we will review this position regularly and update you.
Now more than ever it is essential to remember that even if we cannot meet together physically, that we still remain Church, committed to one another as Brothers and Sisters in Christ.
Yours in Christ’s Service
Sr Roberta Hoey
On behalf of the Provincial Board
