We have succeeded in opening both Episcopal churches in Caithness. Gathered worship is happening once again, albeit in a different fashion from what we are used to. Teams from across both congregations are enabling this to happen, safely and in accordance with both government and SEC guidance.
Pastoral practicalities are being worked through as we adjust to this new normal. For me, as Curate, this includes pacing myself along with the symptoms that are now being called the ‘long tail of CoVid.’ Like many people I may never know for certain that I have had this virus (back in April) but I do have long lasting effects particularly in the form of fatigue. Therefore it is with regret that I am not providing a Curate’s Letter for this month’s Outlook, as I do need to look after self.
