Kerry ETB Community Education Programme: COVID-19 has had a huge impact on communities throughout Kerry. The Kerry ETB Community Education Programme has responded by making a number of courses available online. Kerry ETB understands that not everyone is confident in accessing courses online, but we are available to support individuals to do so. While nothing can replace the learning and social interactions that occur when we meet face to face, we are mindful that people may become disconnected if we do not respond. Therefore, our tutors are available to deliver courses and provide a platform to keep communities connected. Courses are aimed at adults in Kerry who are living alone, adults who have underlining health issues that have resulted in them cocooning and adults who are caring for a vulnerable adult or child. All courses are free of charge to these groups. Register your interest on www.fetchcourses.ie using relevant course codes on the notice in the Church porch or by contact John on 086-1279381.

‘The Kingdom Connects’: Kerry ETB are also taking names of those who wish to learn to use their smartphone, tablet or other portable device for the purpose of staying connected with family and friends. This course will be delivered by our team of ICT tutors who have many years of experience working with people who are not confident around technology! We aim to get adults, particularly those living alone, to develop new skills to ensure we reduce social exclusion at this time.

Healthcare Staff Urgently Required: As we know, the Covid-19 situation has deteriorated significantly over the last week and the next few weeks are predicted to be the most challenging of the pandemic so far. As a result Cork Kerry Community Healthcare are urgently seeking staff to work in their residential settings. These residential facilities (community hospitals) and in private nursing homes are coming under pressure with a number of outbreaks in several residential facilities. They are now asking any healthcare staff (particularly nurses and healthcare assistants) who can assist in providing essential care in these facilities to come forward by contacting the HSE offices or any staff member.

Pieta House provides a free, therapeutic approach to people who are in suicidal distress and those who engage in self-harm - Contact 066 71 63660

Covid-19 Support Line for Older People: ALONE has launched a national support line and additional supports for older people who have concerns or are facing difficulties relating to the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

God be good to you

God be good to you in all your days,

God be kind to you in all your ways,

God give strength to you

when crosses lean,

God send light to you,

the clouds between.

God give peace to you in times of strife,

God bless everything that fills your life.

God send joy to you when grief is o’er,

God make way for you at heaven’s door.

Amen.
