The Parish During Lockdown

Covid 19 has challenged and affected us all in many different ways. The Liturgy Group is proposing to document what has been happening in the Parish during this period. This could be in the form of personal testimonies, recorded in any medium and could include artwork, poetry, photographs, in fact, anything which reflects the feeling and actions of the people of the Parish during this period. We are looking for a wide range of material from all age groups. This would be an important addition to parish history and could form the basis of a future exhibition. Any materials can be marked ‘Church History Information’ and posted or put through the letterbox at the parish office or alternatively, sent by email.
