Our Eventbright link had a slight 'wobble' but should now be working properly and showing our Mass times correctly.
Please use this link (Eventbright link) to book a place at Mass when they resume from Thursday 3rd Dec. The Sunday obligation is still suspended so please attend any Mass during the week to suit your situation. Masses on weekdays are attended by fewer people should you wish to have a quieter / less busy experience - although we have all COVID regulation measures in place to keep everyone safe.
Our regular Mass times are as follows:
Tuesday evening at 7.30pm
Thursday morning at 10am
Friday evening at 7.30pm
Saturday evening at 6.00pm
Sunday morning at 9.30am
Please bring a mask, observe the one way system, social distancing and new way of receiving Holy Communion and check in using he QR code on arrival.
Please only attend Mass if you are well and free of COVID symptoms.
Thank you - looking forward to seeing you back.
God bless you all.
The Liturgical Diary and Diocesan Directories are now available to buy. This year, as we are unable to open our Church shop, we can offer you the online information so you can still make your purchase.
However, if it isn't possible for you to buy them online, please contact us at the parish office and we will help.
See how many world cities you can name...
BUT NO GOOGLING!😁
Mike has been emailing out a quiz round every week for so many months now to the members of the Not So Young Club and a few other parishioners. Thanks Mike! It is another great way to keep our parish community in touch with each other.
If you would like to go on the Quiz list, please contact us at the parish office and we can pass your email address to Mike for this purpose.
Statement from Cardinal Vincent Nichols
Work has already begun to implement the recommendations of the IICSA Report and the Independent Review of Safeguarding Structures and Arrangements in the Catholic Church in England and Wales (sometimes referred to as the Elliott Review).
Cardinal Vincent Nichols: "I say again: I am so sorry. I say this for many bishops who have gone before me over these 50 years. Many hearing this will feel that we let you down. Yes, we did let you down in many ways, in different times, in different places, for different reasons. I apologise again. I am so sorry for all that has happened over these years."
On Carer's Rights Day, we ask for prayers for those who look after loved ones on a regular or even 24/7 basis.
You may not know but our parish hall (in normal times) hosts a weekly group called "Singing for the Brain", run by the Alzheimer's Society, giving support to those living with Alzheimer's and to their carers. It is always a delight to hear their enthusiastic singing coming through the walls - we regularly have 'Roll out the barrel' or 'Daisy, Daisy' in our heads on a Thursday!
Alzheimer's Society, like most other charities, is in need of our help. You can donate to them via their website.
