CAFOD have opened an online appeal: Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal: How you can help
CAFOD is responding to significant crises across the world this week. We are working with local Church organisations in Haiti to deliver emergency aid to people affected by the catastrophic earthquake and tropical storm. In the tragic situation in Afghanistan, we are working to ensure the safety of our local partners and their communities. We are supporting local aid workers to deliver urgent food and water supplies to hundreds of thousands of people facing extreme hunger in Tigray in Ethiopia, South Sudan and north-east Nigeria. You can read more about how we can all express solidarity with our sisters and brothers affected by these emergencies on the CAFOD website: https://cafod.org.uk/News/Emergencies-news. Your compassion, generosity and prayers have helped us to stand together and enable us to continue to support communities in these difficult times. Thank you.
In order to help people feel safe and secure
in our churches, [Bishop Terence] strongly
recommend[s] that we maintain the wearing
of masks, social distancing, the service of
stewards, and the standard of sanitising the
Churches we have so far employed. As and
when it is felt at the local level that
restrictions can be eased, this should be
done gradually throughout the summer and into
the autumn taking into account the state of the
spread of the virus and its effects on the local
community, society in general and the NHS.
