There is a bird atop the stone cross above the belfry of the Pioneer Chapel, but of course, I missed it. You don't want to miss the music and the sermon in Sunday morning's recorded Holy Eucharist service. Link here.

Vale

Heather Cross, wife of Tony, died in Adelaide. Her funeral was held there on Wednesday.

May she rest in peace and rise in glory.


Roadmap out of COVID restrictions

No, that's Church Street. its a bit easier to understand than the 'roadmap' but Angela Alomes and I will be on a Zoom meeting with Bishop Paul Barker this week to discuss how best to ensure the safety of our parishioners, many of whom have underlying health issues, the ease for sides people, and less of a headache for all concerned when the church finally reopens. Once these issues are firmed up with the government, Parish Council will determine the appropriate methods we will use to check on vaccinations on re-opening.

Vaccinations

There is time to get fully vaccinated prior to our re-opening so please ensure that you do so you will be able to attend church and we can keep our congregation safe.


Bishop Paul has asked that the following be included in our newsletter to make sure our non-English speaking community understand the need for double vaccination.


盡快去接種疫苗!

我們毫不猶豫地敦促每個符合資格的人盡快接種疫苗。在大主教的視頻中,在TMA(墨爾本聖公會月報)和主教團的通訊中,這一點已經很清楚了。越來越多的證據表明,接種疫苗是非常有效的。接種疫苗是愛我們的鄰捨的行為,並為我們的社區、教會和社會提供安全保障。對接種疫苗的反對並沒有嚴謹的根據,而且任何一種可用的疫苗產生嚴重副作用的風險都極低。對於那些認為某些疫苗的起源是來自於20世紀70年代的流產胎兒的擔心,我們相信,即使是壞的行為和事件,上帝的意思原是好的,而疫苗帶來的好處是巨大的。大主教和主教們都已全面接種疫苗。我們鼓勵所有神職人員和教會成員盡快接種疫苗。

Organ Restoration


Stage 1 of the organ restoration project will be undertaken by St Andrew's Music Foundation as soon as pledged funds are received as our capable Organ Restoration Committee have now reached their target for that stage - $170,000.

Thank you to all those who contributed so generously.
