Come and Talk to the Listening Church
Yes, I am old enough to remember the Midland (HSBC to you youngsters) Bank advert. But this refers to Pope Francis' Synod next year which will consider and react to the positive and negative experiences of parish life around the world throughout the pandemic and how we can best go forward in the years to come. You can read more about that in the Cardinal's Pastoral Letter which was read at all Masses last weekend and can see how the process will roll out across the Diocese by clicking here There will be further details of how you can make your experience heard in the coming weeks so keep logging in to our website.
Even as the pandemic wanes, we must continue to be aware of those susceptible to infections and those who, for good reason, have not yet been vaccinated. You can read the ongoing instructions from our bishops here and details of how we are obeying them in an old newsletter by following this link.
Our church is open as usual every day from 7:00am until about 7:00pm but that is only through your generosity. So please continue to support us in any way you can by:
- using the contactless giving machines at each door (which saves people counting the money) and through which you will soon be able to Gift Aid your donations
- using the traditional bags at the offertory for your envelopes or cash
- clicking on Supporting Your Parish to find out how to set up a standing order, GiftAid your donations, apply for envelopes, or make BACS payments
- using this Virgin Money Giving link regularly or for a one-off donation
As all sorts of things get back to normal they are detailed in the newsletter and other media but the fast-moving Synodal process is best accessed on this site and our Facebook Page.
So for now, I hope to see more and more of you at Mass again and pray that God may bless you and your loved ones this coming week and always.
