Alleluia! Christ is Risen!
It has been two months since we have been able to physically gather together for worship here in New Brunswick. This has been a challenging season, of course, and there is a deep longing to leave these days of separation behind us and return to our old ways of life.
There are indeed some signs of hope here: the Provincial government has begun to allow some small gatherings for worship (10 people or less), provided they have an Operational Plan in place to insure proper safety precautions are consistently being followed. Also, Bishop David and the Synod Staff have been supporting local clergy and parishes as we all try to prepare to safely open our doors again.
Here at Gondola Point, the Wardens, Vestry, and I are currently working on our parish's Operational Plan, and we hope to have this all in place in the coming days, though there is much to be done. While the easing of restrictions means the possibility of gathering together in person again, it also means we will have to make some big adjustments in how we do so.
Please keep us in your prayers, keep looking for ways to encourage and support each other as well as our neighbours, and stay tuned for more information coming soon.
