Dear Parish Family
We are family. As family we care for one another. Therefore, in light of COVID-19, we are going to take every precaution to protect all our family members. As per the Diocesan directive, we will not be holding Sunday worship services until further notice. Pastoral support will be done over the phone (or email) except in emergency situations knowing that this will be a difficult decision for all involved. Since our Wednesday services can meet the “social distance” requirement, these services will continue unless otherwise notified. The Monday evening Lenten meditation will also continue since it meets the Board of Health criteria. This is certainly going to put a strain both on our spiritual/social network and our financial stability (Consider using PAR during this period. Paul Hare 705-728-8835). Please continue to pray for our frontline health care workers, those who struggle to maintain their health and the health of their family and friends and our parish family. Every effort to encourage spiritual growth and development during this time will be provided via the church’s web site (www.stgeorgesbarrie.com) and Facebook page.
Please check with other members of the parish that they are aware of this notification and pass this on to your contacts. Thank you.
May God bless you and keep you safe and healthy.
The Reverend Canon David Warren
