From this weeks newsletter:
Dear Parishioners, this week we continue with our livestream masses and the Rosary. We will have the times of opening for private prayer from 10.00am – 11.00am and from 6.00pm – 7.00pm each day from Monday to Saturday. During the opening for private prayer, there will be an opportunity for you to drop food off in the porch to support our Foodbank.
This Saturday 21st November at 6.00pm we will have a special livestreamed mass at which we will remember all those who have died over the past year. We will light candles in their memory and we have written to all the bereaved families inviting them to watch the livestream and to join in lighting a candle at home. Please let people know about this. We will read out the names of the deceased and hopefully have their names broadcast as part of the mass.
This Sunday morning, the Feast of Christ the King, we will celebrate National Youth Sunday at both the 9.00am and 12 noon masses. We will make some special recordings of music and singing by some of our young people as well as the bidding prayers, so that they will have a direct input into the masses. We are also inviting our young people to attend socially distanced Youth Club meetings at the beginning of December. We will be writing to the Year 7 pupils for Youth Club and the Year 8+ pupils for Youth Café. We will be using the Parish Centre where there is plenty of room and providing them with some food , so they can reconnect with their friends….. God Bless, Fr Tom

Make an Act of Spiritual Communion: “My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.”
Financial Help. We have also been asked about helping the parish financially. Plase click Supporting your parish financially for more information.
