John Monaghan   RIP
Please pray for the repose of the soul of John Monaghan who died peacefully in hospital last Sunday morning.   His funeral will be in St Peter’s on Friday at 11am.   Only 2 family members will be coming to the funeral, so if you can, please come and help them pray for his soul.

 

Praying with the Pope in July 2021
We pray that, in social, economic and political situations of conflict, we may be courageous and passionate architects of dialogue and friendship.

Today we can relax some covid restrictions, but the bishops are still urging caution.   It will no longer be against the law if you don’t wear a face mask in church, but I hope everyone will continue to do so for everyone’s protection.  


We no longer have a one way system in church and we can reuse missalettes.

 

Usual Mass times are as follows:
   Saturday   
4.30pm     Church opens (with exposition)
5.15pm     Benediction
5.30pm     Mass in St Peter’s
   Sunday       
       9.00am     Church opens
       9.30am     Mass in St Peter’s
11.00am   Mass in St Peter’s       

     
Confessions will be available during Holy Hour.

 

Coming to St Peter’s for Mass:
It is still important to adhere to the following guidelines:
+ Do not come to church if you are unwell, self-
Isolating, shielding or returning from a    
country where you have to quarantine
+ You are advised to wear a face covering
+ Sanitise your hands on the way in and way out
+ You may now enter and exit the church through
either door.   You will no longer be required to
keep to the one-way system.
+ Be mindful of those who want to keep their
distance and don’t “invade” their space.
+ It is now safe to share printed materials, so
you may return the missalette after use.  
+ Observe social distancing as you come forward
for communion.
If you are driving, you will need to buzz security at the white gates.  

 

Confessions
Will be available during holy hour, but, where possible, to be celebrated outdoors.

 

The 9.30am Sunday Mass
Restarts in St Joseph’s from this weekend.  Chairs will be put out as people arrive, so that we can distance bubbles.   Some may prefer to continue coming to St Peter’s where there is more ventilation and more space.

 

The 11am Mass
Is open to parishioners until September.

 

This Sunday
Is the 17th Sunday of ordinary time.   Today and for the next few Sundays we leave Mark and have readings from John’s gospel.   Jesus teaches us about the bread of life.   In the extract today, he feeds the 5,000.

 

Weekday Masses
This week the usual times of weekday Masses are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at 8am in St Peter’s.   For the time being, weekday Masses will remain in the body of the church.

 

Feast of St Ignatius
In the past the Jesuit parishes from the North West have come together on 31st July to celebrate the feast of St Ignatius.   This year it has been deemed prudent for each parish to hold its own celebration.   We shall celebrate by having Mass on Saturday in St Peter’s at 11am followed by the parish AGM and a garden party in Fr Tim’s garden.  Let’s hope for fine weather.   For the party in the garden, please bring your own lunch and, if you can, a folding chair to sit on.   Fr Tim will provide liquid refreshment.   In the event of rain, we will transfer the party to the Memorial Hall.   This is our first chance for us to celebrate as a parish for a long time.   Let’s enjoy ourselves!

 

Next Sunday
Is the 18th Sunday of Ordinary Time.   In the gospel Jesus tells his disciples that he is the bread that has come down from heaven.

 

Delivery of newsletters
This is discontinued for the time being.   A big thank you to those who delivered them!

 

Fr Tim’s availability
If you need to contact Fr Tim, please leave a message on the parish phone line.   He checks this regularly and will get back to you promptly. 

 

Rob Clare RIP
Please pray for the repose of the soul of Rob Clare, on the staff of the college, who died tragically just over a week ago.   Please keep his family in your prayers as well.   His funeral service will take place in Preston Crematorium on Monday 2nd August at 3.15pm.   The service will be live streamed and there will be a link on the parish website.
