May 2020 - Church online

This the closest I've been to St. Peter's for a while. From the morning of the 24th March all Catholic churches were closed to the public and locked.

I've been 'attending' services streamed from Blackfriars in Oxford, and I've been listening to podcasts made by the 'Friars on Air' (Dominicans from the Dutch Province).

It's been a strange experience, but good to think about what church means, and all the folks who are excluded due to disability, or because they don't feel safe or welcome in church. I guess as always, we '...don't know what we've got 'til it's gone...'.
