Letter from the Parish Council, April 27, 2020
Hello St Martin’s parishioners. I hope this finds you well physically, mentally and spiritually.
This is such an unprecedented time we are living through. No school, many of us out of work, many who are working are on the frontlines, and only online church services. Online Masses are helpful but it’s just not the same, and we don’t yet know when we can come together in person. Even though self-isolating and social distancing has become the new norm, please know that you are close in the hearts and prayers of Fr Peter, our staff, and your parish council. Please reach out if you need a hand, to pray or to chat.
As the province looks to start easing some of restrictions over the next few months, please pray that people use common sense, listen to the experts, and we stay safe. We don’t yet know when we will be able to come together to worship, but, when we can, oh what a celebration that will be.
In the meantime, I would ask one thing other than your prayers: please remember that our parish still has bills to pay that don’t go away when we are not in our church. Some parishioners are set up with automatic debits for donations, others are mailing donations in, and some are giving through the archdiocese. We thank you so very much for this! We humbly ask for this to continue and if you have questions about how to continue with your contributions please call the parish office.
As I write this message, lines from two hymns are playing in my head: God is with us now, and Trust in the Lord. We will come through this because God is with us.
God bless you. Take care and stay safe
Lisa Graff, St Martin’s Parish Council Chairperson
