Welcome to Your Parish Church of St Francis, Leigh Park & St Clare, Warren Park
Message from Fr Jonathan:
As you will be aware, the advice about the coronavirus has now developed. Everyone is urged to follow the instructions given by the Prime Minister to stay in their homes in a national effort to limit the transmission of the virus.
This means that St Francis & St Clare’s along with all Church of England churches will close with immediate effect in line with the Government’s instructions. However, we are still called to “continue to pray, to love, to care for the vulnerable”.
We are asked you to remain calm at home, pray for those in distress, and follow the guidance offered. As the part of our amazing community we will continue to pray, to love, to care for the vulnerable, and build up our community, even while separated.”
God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
In this time of anxiety, assure the isolated
of our love, and your love.
We pray in Jesus’ name.
Please stay safe & stay well. God bless you all
Jonathan 23rd March 2020
