Masks should be worn when attending Mass. Please observe social distancing while in the Churches. Those receiving Holy Communion can only do so on the hand – as was the norm last March 2020. In coming to receive please respect social distancing in the procession to the sanctuary. Those attending are asked to bring a wipe with them to clean down the place where they were praying. Like our homes, it is important to keep our Churches clean and hygienic. After Mass, when outside the Church, please once again respect social distancing. Attending any of the weekday Masses fulfils the Sunday obligation which has been suspended for the foreseeable future so please plan which Mass suits you or your family.

Friendship – No matter how much you live the experience of these years of your youth, you will never know their deepest and fullest meaning unless you encounter each day your best friend, the friend who is Jesus. Friendship is one of life’s gifts and a grace from God. Through our friends, the Lord refines us and leads us to maturity. Faithful friends, who stand at our side in times of difficulty, are also a reflection of the Lord’s love, his gentle and consoling presence in our lives. The experience of friendship teaches us to be open, understanding and caring towards others, to come out of our own comfortable isolation and to share our lives with others. For this reason, ‘there is nothing so precious as a faithful friend’ (Sir 6: 15). Friendship is no fleeting or temporary relationship, but one that is stable, firm and faithful, and matures with the passage of time. A relationship of affection that brings us together and a generous love that makes us seek the good of our friend. Friends may be quite different from one another, but they always have things in common that draw them closer in mutual openness and trust. Christus Vivit, 1 50-1 52
