Fr Marco Salvagnini: We welcome Fr Marco Salvagnini our new assistant priest. Fr Marco was ordained in July and this is this first appointment as priest. I know you will give him a warm welcome. Thank you: To the hospitality team who provided marvelous refreshments for Fr Daniel’s farewell. It was a true feast.
Parish Covid protocols update : Following advice and consultation with various diocesan and health authorities we have decided that it will not be necessary to sign in for Sunday or weekday Mass. We will keep some seats for those who wish to practice social distance. If you suspect you have Covid stay at home and join us on- line . If are not vaccinated you might consider doing the same.
Face coverings/ Masks stay: Best practice suggests that face coverings-masks should be retained. The reason for this is that we are spending more than 15 minutes in an enclosed space. We have good ventilation, but as an expression of our concern for others and in particular the most vulnerable face coverings will be retained. Those who are not wearing a face covering may like to sit together. We will review the protocols we use in line with public health guidance. We are all asked to be socially responsible. I know you will understand the good example we as a community are called to give to each other and the wider community . Congregational singing with a mask is allowed.
Secondary Transfer: Certificate of Catholic Practice . If you need a CCP please phone the parish office to make an appointment to see Mgr Jim .
Season of Creation: For many years Christians have celebrated the Season of Creation from the 1st of September to the 4th of October.
