Parish arrangements during the Corona Virus pandemic

All being well, from Saturday, 15th August, Fr Rose will be reducing the number of Sunday Masses to:-Saturday 12 noon & 5pm; Sunday 10.00 a.m. Please arrive early to go through the steps as outlined in the following PDF that we need to take to stay safe. As this could change at short notice in the event of a lock down in our locality, please check this website for any last minute updates.

Please see below the readings and Parish Bulletin for the 19th Sunday of the year.

Further good news is that Fr Rose can now plan for weddings and funerals. More details will be announced on this website on how this will happen whilst maintaining safety by keeping to limited numbers.

Below the Parish Bulletin you will see the Corona Virus Risk Assessment that has been completed for our parish and submitted to the Diocese.

As you will see from the photos following the Risk assessment, Fr Rose has ensured that our church is ready with extra cleaning resources, signs, PPE for volunteers and a one-way system. You will also see photos of the church gardens in bloom, thanks going to the gardening team who have resumed their sterling work.

Bereavement Service

On 14th November a bereavement service gave us an opportunity to pray for our deceased relatives and friends. Parishioners lit candles from the Easter candle and placed them on the high altar.
