05/08/2020 Important News – August Services
Dear brothers and sisters,
During August, we will continue to celebrate Liturgy with those receiving Holy Communion taking part in the service. We deeply regret that limited space makes it impossible for all parishioners to be at Liturgy, and understand that many must feel disappointment and frustration. However, we continue to have to make difficult decisions to ensure the continuity of parish liturgical life.There may be parishioners who have good reason for receiving Communion individually, after Liturgy, so this will still be possible, as has been the practice throughout the lock-down period.
Those wishing to attend the Liturgy with a view to receiving Holy Communion should email Father Deacon Mark BY THURSDAY each week so as to arrange a time for confession and prebook a place at the Liturgy.
It is only by following agreed procedures that we will be able to worship at the chaplaincy, in which we are guests. We must respect our hosts and be mindful of the residents at all times.
|Friday*||TBC*||Little Oratory||Small Compline|
