Churches due to re-open in August

On 8th June, the Standing Committee of St. Francis met to consider the re-opening of our church services.
After a lengthy discussion, taking into account the Bishop's guidelines, FEREDE and our Roman Catholic hosts, we decided that in the best interests and safety of all we would resume our services on the first Sunday of August.
For those of you who will still be in the island we look forward to seeing you at that time.

Reverend John Poole’s latest pastoral letter also contains a short service that you can use at home - it is here.
