Covid 19 Pandemic .

The spread of the virus has reached serious levels and constitutes a real risk of radically increased infection within the community. In many cases, the increase in numbers is due to gatherings within households and communities.

That is the reason why the public health authorities are stressing the urgent need to reduce the number of contacts that each one of us has in this period.  Reducing contacts requires a specific effort on the part of each of us to deliberately change the number of people with whom we would normally come into contact. This is as important in the current situation as the need for face masks, social distancing and hand washing. 

Thank God, there has been no indication of the virus being spread in worshiping communities. Thanks to all who help in sanitising our Churches every day. Let us continue to pray for one another and all our parish community that we will get through this Pandemic.
