The government has asked us to remember the NHS dead with a minutes silence at 11.00 am today.
So just before 11.00 am I intent to go into the church and light the Easter Pascal candle and remember to pray for the dead after i have done a minutes silence. You may want to pray for the dead yourself. It does not matter if you are at home or shopping just pause and then pray.

"At this time where we are sadly denied being able to gather together in prayer in our lovely churches we still have all the usual expenses to meet. At Easter the collection would have been for your priest and of course this has not taken place. The heating was turned off in the church once we were instructed to close it but there are so many other expenses in both churches and the presbytery.
This terrible disease has meant that many of our parishioners are suffering financially and this appeal is not addressed to them. However many of us are not being impacted financially and it would greatly helpful if you could set up standing orders to pay your usual offerings directly to the bank accounts as shown below. If you are normally an envelope giver please quote envelope and your number in the reference (eg "Env 76")
Thank you in anticipation of your response."
