Preaching - Many thanks to Fr Rhys for preaching for us on Pentecost Sunday. It is good to hear another voice reflect on how we can live as Christians in lockdown and to hear something of his experience as a busy GP in West Cardiff. Diolch. Next Week Geraint will preach for us on Trinity Sunday.
Corpus Christi - We will celebrate the feast of the body and blood of Jesus Christ on Sunday 14 June.
Lockdown Transition - Unfortunately, there is still no sign of our churches opening for public worship or even private prayer. Whilst the online worship and meetings on zoom are not for everyone at this stage it is really all we can offer. We continue to pray for our leaders and those on the frontline of seeking an end to the pandemic. May they always be guided by compassion for those who are in greatest need and suffer the most and may make good and wise decisions on behalf of our common good.
St Saviour’s Zoom Coffee - Next meets this coming Wednesday 3 June at 10:30am. If you’d like to participate please let Fr Phelim know. It is very easy to join: all you need is a computer or phone with camera and the link we send by email explains the next steps. If you need help on the day and time please call Fr Phelim on the landline. Once members are able to connect we will publish dates of other meetings, e.g., PCC, Finance, Buildings etc.
Lift Up Your Hearts - Spiritual Support during the pandemic. This week’s reflections are from the artist and poet, Roger Wagner. Copies available online.
Easter Course - Concludes this coming Wednesday when we ask ‘why on earth would we bother with Jesus’. We will host a zoom meeting on this issue on Wednesday at 7pm. Ask Fr Phelim for details and an invitation. The course has been a great success and we hope to use this format of zoom meeting for our other nurturing courses, Faith QI and the Book Groups.
Tackling Loneliness - YourNeighbour.org Our parishes have joined this national network which seeks to support all who are struggling locally. Telephone: 0300 323 9952.
