Suspension of services up to and including end of February, 2021

                                                                                                                                      

 Dear Friends,                                                                                                                                         February 2021 

I trust this letter finds you safe and well. 

You will recall that in January I wrote to you and advised that it had been decided to suspend Church services for four weeks up to and including the 14th February 2021. 

Having reviewed the situation and with an ongoing concern for the number of daily cases of infection on the island, it has been decided to extend the suspension of services for a further two weeks, up to and including the end of February.

 I am aware of the importance of the Church worship and fellowship to our congregation and it is with regret therefore that this decision was considered necessary. However, we recognise that it is our Christian duty to protect the vulnerable in our church family. 

 The decision concerning our Church services will of course be reviewed regularly. 

 With my prayers and blessings. 

 Fthr. Michael Chaplain, Holy Trinity Funchal.
