Covid in Retreat
The return of the High Mass
After eighteen months, we have made a big step forward in the process of recovering the Liturgy after the trauma of the pandemic. Some of the restrictions were still in place, but on Saint Matthew’s Day, congregational singing returned, including hymns. It was a good day for Saint Matthew’s.At the same time, we must pay tribute to all those who have maintained the Covid versions of the Liturgy. People have risen to new challenges and adapted themselves in a wonderful way. Not everything we have learnt over the past year and a half will be left behind as we continue to rebuild.
