A Letter from Father Michael regarding Temporary Suspension of Services at Holy Trinity

Dear Friends,

First, belated good wishes for a safe and peaceful New Year.

The Church Council met recently and decided that because of the high incidence of Coronavirus on the island, we will, with immediate effect, suspend all church services for four weeks.

This means that there will not be a Sunday service on the 24th and 31st of January and the 7th and 14th of February. We will of course be monitoring the situation regularly and if anything changes, we will let you know. If it is considered safe so to do, we will restart the Sunday services on February 21st at 11.00 a.m. which is the first Sunday of Lent.

I understand that for a lot of people, the worship community at Holy Trinity is extremely important and the lack of regular services is difficult. The decision to suspend the services was not taken lightly, but a number of our congregation are categorised as ‘vulnerable’ and it is our Christian duty to protect both those and ourselves.

It has been a long and arduous year for everyone, but the indications are, if we are patient and by God’s grace, we can be positive about the future.

With my prayers and blessings.

Fthr. Michael

Chaplain, Holy Trinity Funchal.

A letter from Father Michael

My Dear Friends,

I pray that during these trying times you and yours are well.

We had our Church AGM yesterday and afterwards the first meeting of the new Church Council.

At that meeting it was decided that for the month of July we will continue, weather permitting, with our 11.00 a.m. Sunday service outside. If it is raining the church is already prepared for us to go inside for the service.

As previously we will maintain social distancing, only receive Communion in the one kind, sign in so that we have a record of who is present, (please bring your own pen) and generally take the same precautions that we have observed for the past three weeks. However, with the expected arrival of visitors in July, it has been decided that with effect from the 5th July 2020 and until further notice, it will also be compulsory for everyone attending the Eucharistic Service to wear a face mask. This is just a precautionary measure to ensure that all that has been achieved during the past months is not jeopardised.

As always, with my love and prayers.

Fthr. Michael
