Today we should have held our annual meetings to elect churchwardens and PCC members. We would have reviewed the past year and looked ahead to the next twelve months. These meetings are now indefinitely postponed until it is safe for us to gather again when our churches have reopened.
I am delighted that our churchyards have reopened again, social distancing still applies of course, but everyone is now free to visit the graves of loved ones. Our ground care gentlemen will also be able to resume their duties so please do not approach them as they go about their work. At St Paul’s Church Foxdale the builders are hoping to be on site to continue the repairs going on there from this week so please be careful if you visit that churchyard.
Bishop Peter is posting on the diocesan website a weekly video reflection based on the Sunday’s Eucharistic readings.
The upcoming Bible readings will be posted on the website on the Thursday beforehand to allow people an opportunity to reflect on the text in advance of the Bishop’s sermon, the video will then go online every Sunday morning.
The cathedral is meeting virtually for worship on Sunday mornings 10.30am, if you would like to join in with this worship please contact Canon Janice.
