Bishop Damien and Fr Ray, who both have pre-existing health issues, have decided to reduce the risk of both being put out of action at the same time if they contract Covid-19 or have to self isolate, they will no longer appear at Mass together. The bishop will celebrate and preach on most Sundays and the services will be pre-recorded to upload to YouTube for 11am on Sunday mornings. Fr Ray will be in reserve to cover for the Bishop on those Sundays he is unable to be at St Augustine’s. We hope that when both have been vaccinated they will resume worship together.

The attached Newsletter is for the next three Sundays and covers the ‘Gesima Sundays or Great Lent.
