Farewell to Fr Phelim - we will have a special celebration after mass today to say our farewells to Fr Phelim and his family. His last Sunday with us will be next Sunday 25 July and his last service a wedding in St German’s on 30 July before he takes the first weeks of August for a holiday and some retreat time.
Interregnum - We are hopeful the bishop will appoint a successor to Fr Phelim who will serve throughout the new Ministry Area. Canon Stewart and the MA lay chair and Peter Lovitt have submitted a proposal as to why continuity of priestly ministry in St German’s and Adamsdown is crucial for our worshipping life and outreach to those in need locally. In the meantime from September the church wardens and the Area Dean, Fr Dyfrig Lloyd, will the first point of contact for any church related or PCC related matters.
Hymns: Christ is made the sure foundation (97), Loving shepherd of thy sheep (434), This is my body (674) Lord of all hopefulness (413)
Covid Risks Update - With the Welsh government now allowing more people to meet indoors and outdoors we will be updating our own risk assessment accordingly. The CinW has also no permitted churches to offer tea and coffee after our services. Please continue to adhere to social distancing whilst in church and wear a face covering.
Gardening Club - meets on the first Saturday of the month at 11:00am. This is open to all. Next meets on Saturday 7 August.
Tea/Coffee Rotas - we can meet in groups of six in the hall after mass. If you could help us serve refreshments please see Angela about joining the rota.
Singing - The CinW guidelines only permit singing in our churches if the local 7 day Covid case rate is below 50 per 100,000. Currently, it is 158 and so congregational singing is suspended this week. This will change week by week.
Recently Departed - Maggie Davies, David Pine, Doris Rose Tweney, Glenys Prosser
