Message from Fr David “It is with joy that I am able to write this week in a more upbeat tone! Following the need to cancel a mass last week end, I have since had kind and generous offers from 5 people offering to join the band of stewards. This means that we should be able to sustain our current worship pattern over the coming weeks.”
Please wrap up warmly if you are coming to mass, although the Church is considerably warmer now we are able to heat the Church beforehand. It would be good to see people but please don’t take any unnecessary risks.
Please note social distancing is now two metres when wearing a mask.
We are aware that questions are being asked as to why churches remain open during this National Lockdown. We are also aware that many local authorities are calling for places of worship to close. We wish to respond to these concerns. Please see more

Watching Mass Online
Please say the Act of Spiritual Communion after the priest has received Holy Communion – he will prompt you.
Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You
Are truly present in the Most
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.
Communion of the Sick
At present we are not allowed to visit the sick and housebound except in danger of death.
Any financial support would be extremely welcome. Here is the link to donate online. You can also set-up a bank standing order or increase an existing one and, if you are a UK taxpayer please consider joing the Gift Aid Scheme. You will find the necessary forms here.
If you can Gift Aid your donation then the value of your generosity is increased by 25% at no cost to you, and Gift Aided contributions form a substantial part of the Church’s finances. Thank you!
