Greetings and Peace to You,
Over the past few days, the Executive Committees of each of the congregations of the Sackville Pastoral Charge have been carefully monitoring updates provided by the Federal and Provincial Governments in respect to managing the pandemic that is COVID-19.
On Friday morning a decision was made to cancel the Pie Day event on Saturday March 14th. This afternoon, having received additional information, it has been decided to not gather at either of the points of the Pastoral Charge this Sunday (March 15, 2020) and instead gather electronically using Facebook Live at 10AM. To join simply make your way to the Sackville Pastoral Charge Facebook page at 10AM and you should see us!
A decision on whether we will gather on March 22nd will be made by March 19th.
For the next two weeks Lloyd will cease visitations to hospitals, care homes, nursing homes and the homes of seniors, except for critical and palliative situations. Groups that use the Sackville United Church space are encouraged to consult and make decisions that contribute to the greater good.
Even as we practice healthy social boundaries, we are community and make the choices we do so as to share in the protection of others.
Please, if you are feeling ill or have a fever or cough, stay home and follow Public Health advisories regarding travel and any requests for self-isolation or quarantine. Stay in touch with one another via phone, social media and email. Lloyd is available by phone, text and email. His contact information is below and he is always ready to respond to questions and concerns.
We are community!
