COVID-19 Update

COVID is an ever evolving situation.

 

An increasing number of Parishioners in our Parish & their extended family have COVID or are in isolation because of exposure.

 

It is with this in mind that we will be returning to the wearing of masks for all Church services. 

The use of antibacterial wipes will continued & we strongly encourage social distancing 

so that we can protect and keep each other safe. 

 

Please stay up to date with the latest ACT Government COVID-19 information and restrictions the website https://www.covid19.act.gov.au/

It is updated regularly with exposure sites, case number and restriction information.

If you have symptoms please get tested. If you have a Positive RAT result?

Please Isolate for 7 days and report to ACT Health & your known contacts.

 

During this time, we can all have feelings of frustration, fear, anxiety & stress.
Please be kind to yourselves & each other and together we can get through this. 
Reach out if you need help and reach out to family, friend & colleagues to check that they are ok.

 

If you find yourself in need of support please contact Elizabeth via phone or email.

We all have a responsibility to help to keep each other safe, well & connected.

If you are on the computer and constantly looking at news it can be depressing, while we need to stay informed, we also need to take time to stop, think how lucky we are and get some fresh air.

 

Remember stay safe, well & connected, we are in this together and together (while apart) we can do this.

 

God Bless & Stay Safe
