PILNE I WAŻNE OGŁOSZENIE!

DRODZY RODZICE DZIECI KOMUNIJNYCH

W związku z tak dramatyczną sytuacją jaka nastąpiła w Anglii związana z epidemią rozszerzającego się wirusa z polecenia Władz Kościelnych i Cywilnych jestem zmuszony do zamknięcia naszego kościoła w Bedford. Niestety nie będzie możliwości nawet prywatnej adoracji Najświętszego Sakramentu w naszym kościele. Będą jednak odprawiane codziennie Msze święte i Adoracja Najświętszego Sakramentu według podanych wcześniej godzin. Będzie zatem możliwość uczestniczenia we Mszy św i Adoracji po Mszach świętych korzystając z naszej strony internetowej: parafiabedford.uk oglądając na żywo (live) na swoich komputerach czy laptopach.


Tak jak wspomniałem pisząc tę informacje do wszystkich Parafian, tak dzisiaj po ponad dwumiesięcznej ”kwarantannie” pragnę donieść bardziej pomyślną wiadomość. Jest wreszcie możliwość stopniowego otwierania kościołów dla wiernych. Nikt nie przypuszczał, że ta epidemia koronavirusa rozszerzy się aż do takich granic. Ale mamy nadzieję, że z zapowiedziami Premiera Wielkiej Brytanii od pierwszej niedzieli lipca będzie kościół dostepny do korzystania dla wiernych. Data planowanej Pierwszej Komunii Świętej będzie przełożona na pierwszą niedzielę października 2020 r. tj. 4.10.2020 r. Będzie zatem wystarczajaco sporo czasu na przygotowanie naszych dzieci do Pierwszej Komunii Świetej. Nie chciałbym przenosić tej uroczystości na przyszły rok. Przecież tak naprawdę nie wiemy co się może wydarzyć w przyszłym roku? Byłoby to ze szkodą dla samych dzieci, które przecież przygotowywały się na ten dzień prawie cały rok. Dzieci mają już swoje stroje Komunijne i oczekują z niecierpliwością na ten dzień swojej Pierwszej Komunii Świętej. Może nie będzie w tym roku wielkich przyjęć i spotkania ze swoimi krewnymi z Polski. Ale przecież spotkają się z najważniejszą osobą którym jest sam PAN JEZUS. Może nie będzie tylu prezentów z tej okazji, ale przecież największym prezentem jest sam Pan Jezus w Komunii Swiętej. Nie będę przeprowadzał jakiś dodatkowych egzaminów do przyjęcia Komunii Świetej, bo egzamin odbędzie się dopiero po Pierwszej Komunii Świętej, czy każde dziecko pozostanie wierne Panu Jezusowi w każdą nastepną niedzielę przyjmując Pana Jezusa w Komunii Świetej. Jakże smutną jest rzeczą ta powtarzająca się niemal co roku praktyka, że tak wiele dzieci po Pierwszej Komunii Świętej żegna się z Nim na wiele lat nie uczęszczając już do kościola na Msze świete. Oczywiście to nie wina tych dzieci ale ich rodziców!


Spodziewam się zatem, że tym razem bedzie inaczej, że dzieci naszej parafii pomimo wszystkich tych niespodziewanych wydarzeń przeżyją jak najpiękniej dzień swojej Pierwszej Komunii Swietej w niedzielę 4 października 2020 r. w naszym kościele w Bedford. I tego im życzę i ich rodzicom radosnego spotkania z Panem Jezusem na całe życie


P.S.: Spotkania z dziećmi przed Pierwszą Komunią Świeta odbywać się będą w miarę możliwości udostępnienia kościoła po wygasaniu tej epidemii coronavirusa.

INFORMACJE DOTYCZĄCE OTWARCIA KOŚCIOŁÓW

Preparations for the Re-opening of Catholic Churches

The doors of our churches have been closed since 23rd March 2020, following the clear instruction from the Government. Bishops, priests and people share a deep desire to re-open our churches as soon as the Government allows us to do so. Re-opening must, of course, happen in a safe manner, and it is likely to take place in stages.
These notes, prepared by the Bishops’ Conference, are intended to assist Parish Priests to be ready to re-open their churches as soon as permission is granted. They focus on what is needed to open churches safely (i.e. providing the least possible risk of transmission of the virus) for private prayer as a first step. This guidance has been compiled with detailed public health advice and scrutiny.

Private Prayer Only .This advice concerns only the opening of churches for private prayer. Further detailed advice will be issued in due course when public worship is safe to re-commence. This advice cannot be followed for other activities that may take place on parish premises, such as groups that would meet in church halls, because at present these must remain closed. This is because group gatherings at the time of writing are not permitted by law, and social distancing cannot be monitored in an effective way with groups that meet socially or for other activities in our premises.

First Steps: Being able to safely re-open, even before churches are allowed to re-open, there are some important preparations that can be made. In order to be ready, Parish Priests need to ensure the fundamentals of infection control are in place by doing the following:

1. Assembling a team of stewards to ensure that the guidance in this document can safely be put into effect. The number of volunteers required will vary depending on the size of churches, but priests will not be able to manage the re-opening of churches on their own. It is important that those in the team should not be drawn from those instructed to shield themselves, or, as a general rule, from groups considered more vulnerable to coronavirus.

2. Securing sufficient supplies of alcohol hand gel, cleaning materials (including gloves for cleaners) and tape to mark appropriate distances on floors and to block off areas of seating. When buying supplies, it is important to ensure that hand gel with anti-viral properties is obtained, this should be at least 65% alcohol: many hand sanitisers are only anti-bacterial and offer no protection against coronavirus. The Government advises that normal household disinfectant and detergents is suitable for cleaning. Tape can be purchased online (search for ‘floor marking tape’ on Church Marketplace, Amazon etc.).

3. Mark distances on the floor and block off pews/chairs to ensure adequate social distancing (2metres/6feet between each person) is maintained throughout the church. As an alternative to blocking off rows with tape, seating may be reconfigured if this is possible (e.g. the removing of chairs or pews). When this is done, the maximum person capacity at any one time must be determined and this made clear to those entering the church, preferably by way of clear signage (see 5 below).

4. Removing from the church all printed materials that are not designed for a single use. This would include service books, hymn books, CTS pamphlets, appeal leaflets etc.

5. Preparing appropriate signage, e.g. asking people to sanitise their hands, not to touch statues, clear entrance and exit signs, maximum safe capacity etc.
Having prepared the church we now need to consider how we manage the faithful when they come to pray.
How is the COVID-19 virus spread? We need to understand the science.

The Government guidance states that the spread of COVID-19 is most likely to happen when there is close contact (within 2 metres or less) with an infected person. It is likely that the risk increases the longer someone has close contact with an infected person. Respiratory secretions (droplets) containing the virus are likely to be the most important means of transmission; these are produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
Opening and Operating Safely. The Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales are working with their Public Health advisors, Public Health England and the Government in order to provide clear directives for the opening of our churches safely which minimises the risk of virus transmission.
Considering the above understanding of virus transmission, the proposed directives are:

1. At least one steward must be present in the church throughout the time it is open for prayer; the stewards must ensure that strict social distancing is maintained by people in the church and if a pre-determined capacity is reached, they prevent others from entering the church. (This may need, for example, a “one in, one out” policy.)

2. Stewards themselves should practice good hand hygiene through either regular hand washing or the use of alcohol-based hand sanitiser. They should not eat or drink or touch their face unless they have immediately washed their hands beforehand and maintain social distance within the church. They should ensure any cuts or grazes on their hands are completely covered with waterproof dressings. They should not physically assist people unless absolutely necessary, for example in an emergency for first aid1. In this case there are some basic steps which stewards should be aware of:

a. Be aware of the risks to yourselves and others in helping someone. (See note 1 at the end of this document)

b. Make sure you wash your hands and use an alcohol gel, before and after helping someone. Ensure that you do not cough or sneeze over someone when you are helping them.

c. Wear disposable gloves or cover hands when dealing with people and dispose of them securely.

d. Cover cuts and grazes on your hands with a waterproof dressing before putting on gloves.

e. Dispose of all waste safely.

f. Do not touch a wound with your bare hand.

g. Do not touch any part of a dressing that will come in contact with a wound.

3. If possible, people should enter and leave the church via separate doors. If this is not possible, stewards should do all they can to ensure people keep an appropriate social distance while entering and leaving church.

4. Alcohol hand gel should be provided at the doors, with notices asking people to sanitise their hands as they enter and leave the church. (See note 2 above in First steps)

5. Places where people can sit or kneel in prayer should be 2metres/6feet apart from one another in all directions. Benches should be blocked off, or seats rearranged, to facilitate this social distancing. People who are not part of the same household should maintain social distancing while in church.

6. The church must be cleaned fully at least once a day, using appropriate cleaning products. Areas that are likely to be touched frequently (e.g. door handles) should be cleaned more often.

The following guidance on cleaning may be of use. (See also note 2 at the end of this document.)

a. Cleaning an area with normal household disinfectant will reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people.

b. Those doing this work must wear disposable or washing-up gloves and aprons for cleaning. If disposable, these should be double-bagged, then stored securely for 72 hours then thrown away in the regular rubbish after cleaning is finished. If not, they should be washed at 60 degrees or above before re-use.

c. The cleaning method should be by using a disposable cloth or disposable paper tissues.
First, clean hard surfaces with warm soapy water then disinfect these surfaces with the cleaning products you normally use. Pay particular attention to frequently touched areas and surfaces, such as bathrooms, grab-rails in corridors and stairwells and door handles

d. those doing this work must wash their hands regularly with soap and water for 20 seconds, and after removing gloves, aprons and other protection used while cleaning.

7. Toilet facilities in churches should remain closed to prevent any risk of transmission of infection. If facilities for hand washing only can be provided, and these can be cleaned frequently, then these can be opened to allow people to wash their hands but only if liquid soap can be provided.

8. Only printed materials intended to be taken away from the church by the user may be made available. Hymn books, missals, devotional materials etc. which may be re-used should be removed from the church.

9. Physical veneration of relics or objects such as statues, crucifixes and shrines is not permitted.
There should be no holy water in church stoups. Care should be exercised when lighting candles on votive stands and all candles should be extinguished before the church is vacated.
The importance of these measures.

These measures may seem burdensome, or even a little daunting. They are, however, necessary not least because if any churches are seen to be operating in a way that may increase the spread of the virus, there is a risk that stricter measures such as prohibition or enforced closure notices could be reimposed by local authorities or even national administrations. It is our hope that with priests and their parishioners working effectively together, we will be able to open churches safely for private prayer, as a significant step towards the resumption of the celebration of Mass and the sacraments.
