Dear Miriam and Archdeaconry Synod members

it is with a very heavy heart that I have decided to cancel the retreat in October……

Sadly the Covid-19 situation in the USA is not at all good and travelling for Lois would be extremely difficult. I think many people here are also worried about what will happen in the autumn. We have re-scheduled the retreat for the 21-23 October 2021. Hopefully we will all be in a better situation by then! I will send out invitations again next year…..

I hope all is well with you all.
