Welcome to Christ the King Parish website
From this weeks newsletter:
Dear Parishioners, we continue to be able to open the churches for Common Worship, but this may change if restrictions are tightened. Last week the Government asked us not to celebrate baptisms and weddings until further notice. We are sorry if this causes some disruption. Only 6 people were allowed at a Baptism so thankfully it has not been too disruptive to rearrange. We will keep you up to date with any other changes required. I know that there will be a few more difficult months ahead and it is important that we are sensible, and we do our best to protect each other. We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to come to Mass and to be able to still celebrate the Sacraments, even with some restrictions. Please continue to be sensible and to make wise decisions concerning you and your family. You can come to any of the Masses in the week and that will help spread out the numbers. You are also encouraged to stay at home and watch the Mass on the livestream if that is the best option for you. The Bishops have removed any obligation to come to Mass, so you should not feel worried or guilty in any way. It is especially important for those in the more vulnerable categories, because of age or underlying medical conditions. People in these categories should at least wait until they have had their vaccination… .. 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.”
Pray As You Go is a daily prayer session, designed to go with you wherever you go, to help you pray whenever you find time. A new prayer session is produced every day of the working week and one session for the weekend. It is not a ‘Thought for the Day’, a sermon or a bible-study, but rather a framework for your own prayer. Lasting between ten and thirteen minutes, it combines music, scripture and some questions for reflection. The style of prayer is based on Ignatian Spirituality. It is produced by Jesuit Media Initiatives, with material written by a number of Jesuits, both in Britain and further afield, and other experts in the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola. Although the content is different every day, it keeps to the same basic format.
