MASSES AT CHRIST THE KING

I would like to again reassure you that even though we find ourselves in Tier 3 we are still able to open for masses based on our initial Risk Assessment. If you are feeling unwell or of have any COVID symptoms then please do not attend any services in our church. If you wish to attend mass then you must come as a household/bubble, maintain the appropriate social distance and wear your face coverings at all times. For those that are exempt from wearing a face covering it is Diocesan policy that you should wear a visor instead. We do not have any visors on site and it is your responsibility to provide one. Children are also advised to wear a face covering. Thank you for your support in keeping our community safe.

In keeping with government ‘Test and Trace’ measures parishioners must book in for weekend masses. The form is available HERE and paper copies are available in church. You can also email secretarychristtheking@hotmail.co.uk with the names of all attendees, time of the mass you wish to attend and a contact telephone number. Please can you send this before 10am on Fridays else you will not be automatically allocated a seat. We cannot guarantee space on the day if you have not booked and you may be turned away.

IF YOU HAVE A SMART PHONE CAN YOU PLEASE ‘CHECK IN’ FOR ALL MASSES VIA THE NHS APP USING THE NHS TEST AND TRACE QR CODE THAT IS DOTTED AROUND THE CHURCH.

2020 CHRISTMAS SHOEBOX APPEAL: Unfortunately I have had to abandon hopes of packing shoeboxes in the parish hall due to the current Covid-19 crisis. However, I am still hoping to provide some joy to a few of the poorest children in Eastern Europe. I have a number of full boxes but would like to appeal to you to help with the transport costs. For more information please call Cath Hesketh on 334 3024 or 07910781031

PARISH CENTRE NEWS 50/50 CLUB: Nearly two thirds of parishioners have responded so far - thank you so much for your continued support. We hope that as many of you as possible are able renew their memberships in support of our Parish Hall but we will not send out renewal letters this year as we know that times are hard for some. With that in mind, though, memberships are only £12 and the more participants we have the greater the prizes! If you would like to join but don’t have a letter please contact John O’Neil on 334 4329. Thank you for your support.

PARISH COUNCIL: Minutes from the meeting on Sunday 31st May are HERE.

SHREWSBURY CATHEDRAL: Shrewsbury Cathedral have changed the times of the masses that they will stream owing to them opening for individual prayer. Please find further details at dioceseofshrewsbury.org.
