RESUMPTION OF SERVICES

RESUMPTION OF SERVICES

Following the Government’s plan for easing restrictions due to the pandemic, the Parish Advisory Council (PAC) has considered again the question of returning to communal worship. Although it still does not seem possible to make firm and definite long term plans, aware that the seasons of Great Lent and Easter are approaching, we plan, in the first instance, to celebrate the Liturgy on the following days:

Sunday 14th March at 11.00 am 

Sunday 28th March at 11.00 am

Sunday 11th April at 11.00 am

when Archbishop Nikitas will be visiting us and preside at the Liturgy

 

Sunday 25th April at 11.00 am
Palm Sunday

 

In addition, and we plan to celebrate a few midweek evening Lenten services on the following days:

 

Friday 19th March at 6.00 pm

Wednesday 24th March  at 6.00 pm

Wednesday 31st March  at 6.00 pm

Friday 9th April  at 6.00 pm

Friday 16th April  at 6.00 pm

Wednesday 21st April  at 6.00 pm

 

All these dates, inevitably, remain subject to possible change as the pandemic situation in the country develops. The PAC will meet again on 7th April 2021 to consider the situation at that time and discuss the best way ahead, particularly for Holy Week and Easter.

 

We continue to pray our God, in His great mercy, will guide and protect everyone!

With deep affection and love in Christ,

Father Alexander, Father Ian, Father Stefan, Deacon Stephen
