Newsletter distribution
If you, or someone you know is shielding, and you would like a newsletter delivered to your home, please let Fr Tim know.   16 people received a newsletter in this way last week.

 

Fr Tim’s availability
Fr Tim will check the answer machine in the parish office frequently.

 

Coming to St Peter’s to pray
Now that Mass has restarted, few people come to pray on a Saturday afternoon.   The church is open and Confessions are available from 4.30pm.

 

Coming to St Peter’s to Mass
+ Do not come to Mass if you are unwell, self-
isolating or shielding or returning from a    
country where you have to shield
+ You should wear a face covering
+ Observe the one way system
+ Observe social distancing
+ Any printed materials you touch (Newsletters
etc) place in a bin or take home with you.
+ You may wish to come to a weekday Mass
instead of on Saturday or Sunday.   This will
fulfill your Sunday obligation.
If you are driving, you will need to buzz security at the white gates.   The Lodge entrance is closed.

 

Today
Is the 19th Sunday of Ordinary Time. In the gospel Peter tries to imitate Jesus by walking on the water.   Today is the day of prayer for Europe.

 

Weekday Mass
Weekday Masses take place in St Peter’s on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 8am.   We are getting an average or 10 people coming to the weekday Mass.

 

Feasts in the week
On Friday we celebrate the feast of St Maximilian Kolbe, a polish priest who gave his life in a concentration camp so that another prisoner might be spared.

 

Next Sunday
The readings of the Sunday are replaced by those of the feast of the Assumption of Mary into heaven. 

 

Thanks to the volunteers…
…who acted as stewards to enable us to open the church and have Mass.

 

Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals
These may now take place in church, but with a maximum of 30 people in attendance.

 

Being received into the church
We were due to receive into the church 4 family groupings at Easter time.   This Sunday we shall receive Sophie Charleuf, with her daughters Odette and Raphael, at the 11am Mass.   Next week at the 11am Sunday Mass, it will be the turn of Stephanie Donegan.

 

Music at Mass
We are not yet able to sing at Mass, but at the 5.30pm Mass and the 9.30am Mass, Andrew Snape has been playing melodies of hymns over the PA system.   As well as old favourites, he has selected some new hymns that, hopefully will be included in the new college hymn book.

 

Newsletter online
84 people accessed our newsletter on line last week and 17 people read the Sunday reflection and the Bidding Prayers. Probably some of those who are away on a break

 

Virtual Novena views
The virtual novena preparing to celebrate the feast of St Ignatius had an average of 4,000 views per day!   Well done Fran!
