We are just about to come to the end to the first week of January 2021. Boy, it has been eventful week.
It started with the announcement of the 3rd lockdown in England. Since then the Mhinisteir has been having to deal with conflicting instructions from the Church of England(COE) with regards to keeping the Church open. Unfortunately, these conflicting instructions have caused unnecessary alarm to our Church wardens and he has had to spend a lot of time on the phone trying to calm them down. I wish that people in the COE who are in positions of authority realise that one size doesn’t fit all. What works for the city churches DOESN’T work in rural churches! Many in our parishes do not have internet access.
We heard of two deaths in our parishes. One a premature death as a result of Covid.
This morning, we heard that a friend is in hospital after being involved in a serious road accident. She was a pedestrian.
