St. Lawrence Church Covid-19 Update
The impact of Covid19 has been far reaching. Since mid-March, the church has been closed, and our office is being operated remotely. Within St. Lawrence Parish and the North End, the entire community is grappling with this incredibly trying situation. We’ve seen businesses struggling, individuals trying to figure out how to make ends meet, people living alone are feeling isolated, and indeed everyone struggling with the emotional impact of a steady stream of difficult news. In difficult times we can usually rely on the support of our faith community, at Mass and through other programs, to provide spiritual comfort and support. Sadly the nature of this pandemic has removed our ability to gather as a faith community in our beautiful church and even funerals have been limited to a very small graveside gathering only.
We have not however simply gone away, and while we may not gather in person at St. Lawrence, this does not mean that the celebration of our faith has ended. In fact we are currently celebrating the Easter Season, gathering “virtually” for Sunday Mass on ‘Facebook live’, and our parish office staff continue to respond to the needs of our parishioners and community as best we can (albeit remotely).
As Catholics, we often describe ourselves as an Easter people – for it is through the divine mercy of Jesus, by His cross and resurrection that we receive new life. It seems the Easter season has taken on a new significance this year. The readings from the third Sunday in Easter, speak about how the apostles meet Jesus on the road, and recognize him when he breaks bread with them. We may feel like we are on a long and difficult road right now but we continue to live with faith and hope and we all look forward to the opportunity to celebrate God’s mercy once again in person in the breaking of the bread.
In the meantime please remember those that are struggling – Whoever is able is encouraged to support local food banks, local businesses, and to keep a watch for our neighbours who are isolated or in need. We also thank members of the community and our parishioners who have continued to support St. Lawrence Parish financially at this time. Since our Parish’s only source of income is usually our Sunday collection – your continued support helps us to pay the bills and keep the church in good repair.
