For Saturday and Sunday Masses, the deadline for requesting a place at Mass is 2.00pm on Friday. You no longer need to book a place at the weekday Masses, but will have to give your contact details to the stewards on arrival.
In accordance with Government Guidelines, each time you reserve a place, Marjorie will need your name and a contact number for track and trace purposes, should this become
necessary. If you leave a voicemail message, please leave your number as well.

It seems we are now reaching a point when we are being asked to dig in, and prepare for a second wave. The rhetoric is scary from all quarters. However, I do believe that the level of support and care, that we have developed over the past few months will give us a strength that will enable us, as a community, to look after the most vulnerable. The Eucharistic presence available on a daily basis in both of our churches is a real gift too. ‘It is the Source and Summit’ of our faith (Vat II). The alternative daily celebrations in St. Joseph’s and St. Godric’s, necessary due to the demands on stewarding and sanitising, have been attended by parishioners from all parts of the parish. Thank you. I’m sure the Eucharistic Services are a miss. The webcam has been important for many. ‘It’s just fantastic that we can come back to Mass - even in its restricted format’, is how one parishioner described her experience recently. Please God, we can continue growing stronger as a parish Eucharistic community. Financial support continues to come in for the Hardship Fund. A big thank you to all. The parish Bills have to be paid too, so please keep that in mind.
