CoronaVirus – Supporting and Helping Each Other

The measures put in place by the Government at this very difficult time are to help all of us to be protected in the best way possible. Many of us will be isolated and this, inevitably, causes other problems. We must all support and care for each other in whatever way we can. Some Parishioners will become very lonely and need a visit or a phone call, others may need shopping or lifts to appointments, there will be a variety of needs within the community. buy accutane online 30mg But always keep in mind the need to adhere to social distancing instructions.

Members of the SVP will be doing all that they can to help but we want to extend what we are doing to all Parishioners. If you are someone who does not have to self isolate and would like to help please take some of the cards from the box at the back of church and give one to anybody you are aware of in your area who may need help. The card gives them your contact details offering your help. (Click to download)

This is a great opportunity for us to “Love one another". We must all pray that these measures have the best possible effect and put our trust in God’s love and compassion.

If you would like support in any way please get in touch with Peter on 01200 441081 who will help or give you a contact for someone who can.
