If you were outside St Teresa’s Church at 8:00 pm on Thursday evening (9 April 2020), you would have seen a priest making rather a lot of noise with a stick and a makeshift drum. No, it wasn’t boredom from the lockdown finally getting the better of Fr Dominic; it was Fr Dominic supporting the Clap for Carers campaign which recognises the efforts of the NHS workers across the UK who fight the coronavirus pandemic every day.
Fr Dominic joined hundreds of people around the country making noise outside their homes in whatever ways they could as their way of showing their appreciation of carers. This is the third week that the campaign has run. The video below shows Fr Dominic’s contribution to the campaign.
