18th Sunday of the Year
Taking the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven,
he said the blessing, broke the loaves,
and gave them to the disciples,
who in turn gave them to the crowds.
They all ate and were satisfied,

Here is the latest news from Fr Charles about Church and our Community

What’s Happening?

The Eucharist Returned, 2nd August 2020

For some really god news, please see the item under Latest News below

ST MARY’S IS OPEN, MONDAY WED FRI & SAT, FOR DAILY EXPOSITION FROM 11 am till 12 noon each day.

BISHOP Peter met with parishioners and Fr Charles last Wednesday to finalise preparations to open the church for prayer midweek This has been about making the church a safe place for everybody. Initially we’ve limited visiting to anything up to 30 people.

You’ll need to….

  • Wash hands as you enter.
  • Try to touch only the place you sit in.
  • Use the one-way system ie in at the main doors and out via the Fynnongroew Rd exit
  • Not use the toilets. (sorry !!)
  • If it’s cold bring a jumper (We need to open windows)

Yes, admittedly it may be easier to pray at home !! But lots find the church space helpful. And also, this helps us develop practices for the future to allow us to gather together safely. It will help towards the next step, meeting on Sundays. So many of you tell me you cant wait !!!

IF YOU’VE ANY CONCERNS DURING THE VIRUS TIME PLEASE FEEL FREE TO RING FR CHARLES RAMSAY
