We have received notification from our Bishops (see the Letter below) that Public Masses and Liturgies are to be suspended due to the coronavirus disease.
Sadly, there will therefore be no public Masses or liturgies at St Patrick's from Friday 20th March until further notice. Of course, our Obligation to be at Mass on Sundays is suspended.
The Government have now stated that church buildings are to be closed.
Please though let's keep each other in prayer. I will be celebrating Mass each day in our private chapel at St Mary & John's, where I live, in the following intentions (as entered in our Parish Mass diary – click the link below).
Below you can find some resources to help us still unite through prayer, spiritual communion and acts of kindness in the community for those vulnerable and isolated.
If you would like to participate in Mass via Internet, click in the picture below for daily Mass from St Chad's Cathedral or from Word on Fire Catholic Ministries:
All other Parish gatherings such as choir practice, parish committee meetings, First Holy Communion catechesis for children, RCIA sessions and so on will also be cancelled and rearranged at a later date.
A vital aspect of these challenging times is our care for each other. There are so many ways in which we are to do this: being attentive to the needs of our neighbour, especially the elderly and vulnerable; contributing to our local food banks; volunteering for charitable initiatives and organisations or simply keeping in touch by all the means open to us.
If you are in need at all, please either e-mail us: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone me on 07857462527. Also if anyone is sick and needs anointing etc.please do let me know.
Please pass on this information to any friends you know who have no access to the internet.
Let us pray for one another in this difficult time.
