Preaching - Many thanks to Geraint for preaching (again) for us on Trinity. This is his third year in a row preaching on this particular day. Maybe he’ll get a break next year. We wish him the very best as he prepares for his ordination to the diaconate (hopefully soon).
Corpus Christi - We will celebrate the feast of the body and blood of Jesus Christ next Sunday 14 June (transferred from this coming Thursday).
Meeting of Households - if any church households would like a safe place to meet then St German’s Memorial garden could possibly be a perfect venue. Just let us know when you’d like. The Garden is open each day to all who seek peace and quiet.
Lockdown Transition - With the good news that schools are opening on 29 June we are still hopeful that places of worship will be allowed to open again for small acts of worship or quiet prayer. It is important that our buildings remain always available and exist to be of service to the people of our local area. Our PCC will discuss this when we next meet and how we might best plan for safety and social distancing guidelines.
Parochial Church Council - Next meets on Zoom on Monday 22 June at 7pm. Usual updates will be discussed as well as lockdown transition and compliance.
Zoom Coffee Mornings - St German’s next meets on Wed 17 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.
Lift Up Your Hearts - Spiritual Support during the pandemic. This week’s reflections are from the dean of Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford, The Very Rev’d Prof. Martyn Percy.
Easter Course - Many thanks to all those who joined our course this year. We always had 9 or so participants. The next faith nurturing group will be a book group looking at ‘In Search of a Way’ by Gerard Hughes SJ. This will begin in July.
Foodbank - Please continue to donate food locally. Please see Cardiff Foodbank website for details of open collection sites and how and when to drop off food for those in need.
Sunday Readings - Page now updated on the website. Readings go up to mid September.
Recently Departed - Joyce Fish, Dudley Walwyn, Bernard Lewis (RIP)
