- Wear a face mask during Mass.
- Maintain social distancing of at least 1 metre in the Church, and 2 metres outside of Church.
Our Newsletters also have our order of service, which you can view by clicking here. Although, paper copies are discouraged at this time, there are copies at the back of Church for those who do not have access to online facilities.
Please take one if you need one, but please take them home with you and DO NOT return it to the pile. Thank you.
During this time we are unable to use our Mass books. However, Fr Regis has given permission for people to use the Universalis App on their mobile phone during Mass, so long as the phone is put on silent. The Universalis App can be downloaded from both Android and Apple stores, and costs £10.99.
Live Streaming will be available during Mass Times.
Your donations through the offertory support the mission and ministry of our parish.
This new facility makes life easier and addresses the various issues over the use of cash.
Not only will it be possible to make donations via the card reader, shown on the left, from the Church foyer, but, you will also be able to make donations online.
When the system goes live, we will recommend, that anyone who can Gift Aid their donations, make their first donation online. The first time Gift Aider's use this system it will ask you to register, and entering information on the Card Reader's small screen is a bit of a challenge.
If you are a tax payer, please do consider joining the Gift Aid scheme as we get an additional 25p from the government for every £1 you donate.
We are using a diocesan recommended system to ensure the security and privacy of your data. The CollecTin system, and the Sum up payments processing system are registered with the fundraising regulator, in addition to the usual financial regulatory authorities.

At this difficult time, you can continue to support our parish mission and ministry, by donating your offertory using online methods, such as Direct Payments, Standing Orders, and via the diocesan JustGiving page.
However, for those who cannot use electronic payments, you can still post donations to the parish house.
All the details you need are given in the Donations section at the bottom of this website, but please do remember, whichever method your use please put STIPEND- then, your Surname followed by your Gift Aid number (if applicable), so we can understand the entries as they come through on our bank statements.

The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales recognise that this time of the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting every person in our countries. Those who are sick, and their families, are suffering many hardships of isolation from contact with those they love.
Our front-line workers in hospitals and in care homes all over our lands are giving exceptional service to those who are vulnerable at this time.
In order to show a spiritual solidarity with all those who are involved in the ways described above, each week from next Thursday, a Catholic Bishop will celebrate Mass in their Cathedral which will be live-streamed for people to join.
This will take place every Thursday at 7pm.

Young people are very much at ease with the internet. Whilst we cannot gather together physically, we are still able to come together as a community in prayer.

In these difficult times it is often helpful to turn to time-honoured practices of prayer in the Catholic tradition. For centuries Catholics have united their sufferings with the Passion of Christ through praying the Stations of the Cross. Our Vicar General, Monsignor Matthew Dickens, wrote these meditations in 2009 and they were subsequently published by the Carmelite Press in 2012. Monsignor Dickens has kindly offered them as a source of comfort and reassurance in the weeks and months ahead.
