We all have our favourite ‘go to’ resources that nurture and sustain our faith during the COVID-19 pandemic.
While we are making available a range of resources that we hope will go some way to responding to our diverse needs, the most important call in this experience is to focus our prayer on the Word of God from each Sunday and the Prayer of the Church. There is opportunity within crisis and we encourage you to seize it.
This is a time to revel in and deepen our appreciation of the great gift, as Christians and Catholics, of being in communion with each other as baptised members of the Body of Christ, brothers and sisters in life and prayer. We are not alone.
It is also a time for patience and grace in our response to our isolation from the ordinary experiences of daily life and the liturgy of the Church. As someone said one recent Sunday, this is the time for us to ‘Go and announce the Gospel of the Lord’ in supermarkets and the Church community.
Please keep your eye on this section of the website for further updates as the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold. More importantly, let us keep our eye on each other.
