As you may know on Thursday, January 7, 2021, Minister of Health Adrian Dix, and Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry extended the Provincial Health Order currently in place with restrictions to curb the spread of COVID-19 until February 5, 2021. Therefore, the Directives previously issued have been extended and remain in place in the Diocese. Please find attached a Memo from Bishop Gordon which you are requested to share with your community.
We remain grateful for all the People of God in our Diocese who work together, in the words of Pope Francis “to cooperate and care for the most vulnerable, doing the hard work of learning to listen to and accompany others” during this pandemic. The Gospel Acclamation for today “Jesus preached the good news of the kingdom and healed all who were sick” (Mt.4.23) encourages us to remain united in prayer as we look to the light that dawns on the horizon of hope in the future.
