OPENING OF CHURCHES FOR PERSONAL PRAYER.
Bishop Fintan has consented that our church may be open to the public for periods of Personal Prayer from Mon 18thMay. This is conditional on the Church community maintaining all the appropriate conditions of sanitising and social distancing etc. A number of members have committed to a roster of sanitising each day at 9am. Additional volunteers are welcome. Volunteers can email the parish or phone the office.
An additional requirement, especially at the beginning, is the stewarding of this policy while the church is open. This is important and for this we need volunteers. At present we are setting the challenge of opening the church from 10.30 am to 12.30 pm from Mon to Sat and having Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. If people could commit to a period of 30 minutes or more we could complete this roster, and even extend it if there is sufficient support. It would be nice to be able to keep our doors open for a longer period. Names of volunteers – specifying a time – can be emailed to the parish email@example.com. Tel: 0214341362.
