The clergy call to prayer and compassion

“Our prayer is only meaningful if we act with compassion. This is evident in the way that our clergy have maintained close links with people in alternative ways in the COVID-19 environment. Telephone calls, emails, mailed letters, care packages and live streaming of services and events have made a world of difference to people who have felt anxious, isolated or lonely,” says The Ven.
