Advice from Archdiocese of Armagh during current covid pandemic.

The wearing of face coverings inside Church buildings; Suspension of a handshake at the Sign of Peace; Holy Communion to be received in the hand; social distancing within and outside Churches – such measures have been the norm since March 2020.

What we do in Church is a reminder that covid still exits among us. Let us continue to look after each other.

An Exam Prayer: Loving God, I turn to you today. As the exams approach, I am nervous and so I ask you to help me. You know how important these exams are to me. Set me free from worry, give me your peace and help me to think clearly. Help me to remember what I have learned, to use my time well, not to panic, to do my best and not to worry about the outcome. Help me to realise that the exams are not there to catch me out but to find out how much I know. Lord, keep me calm so that I can write down all I know. Keep my friends calm too, we’re all in this together! Let me sleep each night so that I am refreshed and renewed for the next exam. Even if I struggle, I must always remember that there is a bigger picture of which these exams are only a small part of. Most important of all, calm me down, keep me focussed, guide me along, get me through the scary moments and make sure I attempt every question. Thank you for being my friend today and always. Amen
