All those who are sick,  housebound or isolating at home.

Marie Frances Hampson who has died and all those whose anniversaries occur at this time especially Brian Hurtley, Ted Lowe, Bridget McCormack, Ann Hammond, Raymond Boyes, Joan Bebbington, Westby Thorp, Bernard Gough, Mary Ann Smith and Mona Cavanagh. May they rest in peace and may the Lord bring comfort to their families and friends.

STATIONS OF THE CROSS will be celebrated each Friday in Lent at 11am on the livestream. The service will be recorded for you to join at your convenience..

FAMILY FAST DAY: Please place any Family Fast envelopes or offerings in the baskets at the church door.

HOLY WEEK AND EASTER: Bookings will open for our Holy Week and Easter services and Masses from Monday, 8 March. We are increasing the capacity of the church to 30 households for Good Friday and Easter Sunday but for this to happen safely it is vital that everyone sits in the place they are directed to by the stewards. I am very grateful to our stewards for all they are doing to ensure that our church can open safely for Mass.

PARISH FACEBOOK PAGE: For those of you who use Facebook we now have a Parish Facebook Page where you will find news and announcements about parish life. These will of course still appear on our Parish  Website but it offers another way to reach out to people beyond our parish.

BAPTISMS: I am happy to celebrate Baptisms by arrangement although Government regulations permit a maximum of 6 people to be present at this time. The Service can be live streamed for family and friends to watch online. Please call me for more information

SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION  is offered after Weekday Masses in the sacristy or by appointment.

THANK YOU For your Offertory gifts Please place any offertory envelopes or offerings in the baskets at the church door or post through the presbytery letterbox or;  thank you for your continued support of the parish in such difficult circumstances.  (Diocese of Shrewsbury is a Registered Charity)
