Tuesday of the Epiphany Octave
Dear Clergy and Laity,
With the continued lockdown, we once again we find ourselves in the difficult position of not being able to worship publicly.
It is my hope that we shall be able to come together once more as a Church on Ash Wednesday, 17 February 2021, if the lockdown is lifted as estimated on the 15th of February.
In the meantime, I encourage all priests to celebrate Holy Communion in the safety of their homes with their immediate families. All laity are encouraged to pray Morning Prayer on those Sundays while we are prohibited to worship together.
I encourage everyone to pray this collect daily until we are once again able to worship freely:
O ALMIGHTY and merciful God, with whom are the issues of life and death: Grant us, we beseech thee, help and deliverance in this time of grievous sickness and mortality, and sanctify to us this affliction, that in our sore distress we may turn our hearths unto thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Please continue to remember Bishop-Emeritus Kenyon-Hoare in your prayers as he battles with his own illness.
The Very Reverend Damien Truslow-Trudeau
Anglican Catholic Missionary Diocese of the West
