Gospel Reflection

‘Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar – and to God what belongs to God’

Jesus’ response to the Pharisees’ trap shows us that, while we cannot cut ourselves off from the affairs of the world, we should never compromise our beliefs and values. Fr Adrian Graffy reflects. See more

The obligation to attend Sunday Mass has not been reimposed and everyone should consider their own health and the health of others before coming to mass. The 11.00am mass will continue to be live streamed via this YouTube link . The stream goes live 10 minutes beforehand. Be assured that those present on 18th October and those watching the live stream are all one in our parish worship.

Please see the standard mass card in case you need it for the words of the responses, creed etc. For those watching online the act of spiritual communion will be said after the priest has received Holy Communion.

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You
Are truly 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 being already there and unite myself
wholly to You. Never permit me to be
separated from You. Amen.

COVID-19 restrictions in place when the Church is open

We have arrangements in place that make it possible to be present for the Holy Sacrifice and to receive the Body of Christ at Mass. Also to attend the church for private prayer.

NHS COVID-19 app

If you have the app on your smartphone please scan the QR code for the church when you arrive. Otherwise please fill in a track and trace slip when you are seated.

The list of Covid-19 precautions can be viewed or downloaded HERE

Financial Support

Any financial support would be extremely welcome. Here is the link to donate online, if you prefer or wish to take out a standing order with your bank. Thank you.

Communion of the Sick

At present we are not allowed to visit the sick and housebound except in danger of death. Hopefully this will change soon.

I hope you are all keeping well. It is good to see a steady growth in the numbers of those who are returning to public worship and I know many others are watching the live stream.

Yours in Christ,

Fr David

World Mission Sunday 18th October 2020: Here I am, send me!

Missio writes:

World Mission Sunday – the one day in the year when the entire global Church comes together in support of mission – is happening on 18 October with a shout of courage and faith: ‘Here I am, send me!’

This special day is celebrated in every Catholic community in the world. It is a moment of grace to express solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Christ who are living in situations of poverty, violence and oppression. See more
