Alleluia! Christ is Risen! Christ Reigns on High!
What a gift that we have been given this week as our Provincial government has continued to safely "open up" New Brunswick, outlining steps which include allowing social visits with families and friends, as well as religious gatherings of 50 people or less beginning May 29. (More info here).
Here at St. Luke's GP, our Wardens & Vestry are preparing in the hopes of opening up worship services again as soon as next Sunday (May 31), which also happens to be the feast of Pentecost.
In order for this to happen, we will need to follow clear government guidelines around maintaining safe distances and minimizing risks, as well as create and follow an Operational Plan. This Plan will be made available to all as soon as possible, but in the meantime here is a heads-up about some of the changes that you will likely notice:
I know these are a lot of changes to adjust to, and there will likely be even more changes ahead, but as we continue to move forward together as people of faith, hope, and love, I know we will still find plenty to rejoice in and give thanks to God for in the days ahead.
