The Rector, the Revd Gary Dowd, shared remotely with parishoners the following short act of worship for Sunday, March 29th:
With the unprecedented closure of all our churches in the national effort to contain the coronavirus, Covid-19, our Rector, the Revd Gary Dowd leads a short act of worship for Mothering Sunday here
After the latest advice that we should further reduce our social contacts to slow down the spread of the coronavirus, the Rector has very reluctantly decided to cancel tomorrow’s Holy Communion service for St Patrick’s Day and also the two Communion services that were due to take place this Wednesday, March 18th. There will be a further update before the end of the week.
Over Lent we are again inviting people to collect spare coins and to donate them to Kisiizi Hospital in Uganda. St Paul’s Kisiizi Support Group hopes to be able to continue to fund the annual salary of a surgeon at the hospital, which is the equivalent of €11,000. You can collect a jar from the back of the church and please return it after Easter. In this increasingly cashless age, we realise that there are no longer as many coins in circulation, however there was a very encouraging response to this coin appeal last year which we would hope to repeat. The latest newsletter from Kisiizi is now available here
Meanwhile, please note there will be a Soup and Roll Lunch in the Main Hall of the Parish Centre on Sunday, April 5th (Palm Sunday), after the 10.30 am service, in aid of Kisiizi Hospital.
