BISHOPS’ PLANNING FOR GRADUAL REOPENING OF CHURCHES AND PARISH MINISTRIES

The Scottish Bishops are looking at what is needed before our Churches can be safely reopened. They have formed a Working Group under the Chair of Sir Harry Burns, previous Chief Medical Officer for Scotland.

Even when our Churches reopen parish life cannot return to normal until a vaccine is developed and an immunisation programme established. Therefore, a second Working Group will examine how our parishes can safely minister to people’s spiritual and pastoral needs. The Chair is Bishop Brian and to learn more please click on this link.https://www.rcdai.org.uk/church-infection-control-group-starts-work/
