Update from 12th October 2020

In response to the latest restrictions Fr Rose has been able to confirm that we can continue with Mass under our existing arrangements with our weekend Masses as follows:- 12 midday and 5.00 p.m. on Saturday; 10.00 a.m. on Sunday. There are however changes to Baptisms and Weddings and Fr Rose needs to be contacted as soon as possible by parents who have booked baptisms. The following PDF details the current Government requirements for places of worship including restrictions on mixing before and after Mass.

Please arrive early to go through the steps as outlined in the following PDF that we need to take to stay safe. A parish QR code is now available on the main noticeboard, the glazed panel of the door through to the presbytery and the parish meeting room for those who have the NHS Covid-19 Test & Trace App. Please check this website for any last-minute updates, as changes might be made at short notice in the event of a lock down in our locality.

See below for the readings and Parish Bulletin for the 30th Sunday. Please note messages from Fr Rose about names for the November book and new arrangements for Confirmation.

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 a safe place with hand sanitizers, extra cleaning resources, signs, and a one-way system. You will also see photos of the church gardens in bloom, thanks going to the gardening team for their hard 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.
