From our Bishop
No one can say 2020 has been like every other year. We live in very strange times. This was most noticeable when everything was shut down around Holy Week and Easter. Despite the locked doors, we were able to live stream the ceremonies from the Cathedral. Even with live streaming, we have missed greeting people face-to-face and sharing our stories. With the closure of churches and schools earlier in the year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the autumn edition of Horizons wasn’t published.
The celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation was suspended in April. This has meant I haven’t been able to visit many parishes and meet you. Confirmations have now been rescheduled, but with a limitation on numbers. In contrast, a parish may have had required only one or two celebrations for Confirmation; they will now require two or even four celebrations. Read More >
