Sunday 18th October

 

Dear friends,

 

This is just a reminder that the Annual Report and the Accounts are now available on the Websites. Please do have a look at them ahead of our APCM on 25th October, which will take place immediately after the 11am service.

 

Also, please note that the clocks will go BACK on 24th October. You will therefore need to set you clocks accordingly, otherwise you’ll find yourself in church an hour too early!

 

According to the latest Covid guidelines from the Government we are still in tier 1 on the island. This means we will not need to make any amendments to our current Covid arrangements for the time being. I will let you know if this changes.

 

The latest pastoral guidance we have received from the Diocese is that Clergy are now allowed to take Holy Communion to people who are vulnerable and unable to come to church. Please let me know if anyone would like to receive Holy Communion at home and I will gladly take it to them.

 

As you will know, our churches finances have suffered as a result of lockdown, although we have been grateful that many regular givers have continued to make their contribution to the church.

 

We are also grateful to Dennis for keeping All Saints’ open during the week, through which we have received a good sum from tourists’ donations.

 

However, it will still be a struggle to meet our Parish Share this year so, as part of our Patronal Festival on November 1st, where we give thanks for all that All Saints’ church means to us, we will be having a retiring collection.

 

At St Alban’s, we will have a retiring collection after the 10.00 All Souls’ mass on Monday 2nd November.

 

The gospel reflection this week is by Michael Moore, who is a member of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate.

 

With my love and prayers,

 

Deacon Corinne
