CORONAVIRUS:
Owing to the current climate and government guidelines the decision was made this week to close the church until further notice. This decision was not made lightly. I believe that this is the perfect time to reflect on what makes a ‘church’. While ‘church’ the building is closed, ’church’ the community is not. We are a community who continue to love and support each other through the good times and the bad. While you may be in isolation you are not alone. If you need help to get shopping done, pick up prescriptions etc. then please contact us via the office. We have a group of parishioners who are both able and willing to help however we can.

NATIONAL ROSARY RALLY: is taking place from 9am to 9pm on Pentecost Sunday 31st May. Pope Francis is encouraging Catholics to pray the Rosary in their family homes during the month of May, especially when the Pandemic brings families together at home. He encourages the simple praying of the Rosary and also joining online Rosary initiatives to ask Our Lady to pray with us for deliverance from Covid-19 and has composed two prayers for this intention. Our Diocese has been asked to pray a Rosary Hour from 2.00pm and I warmly invite you to take part. Bishop John Keenan will lead a final Rosary at 9pm to which all are invited. We will be looking at setting up a Zoom (or alternative) meeting for the parish lead by Fr Tom. If you would be interested in joining us then please contact the parish office.

SUNDAY MASS: You can watch a recording of Fr. Tom celebrating Sunday Mass by following this link, and remember Fr. Tom's homilies are published here every week.

Please read the latest copy of the parish newsletter as this will be an important mechanism for keeping you appraised of developments.

SHREWSBURY CATHEDRAL: The live stream of Daily masses will continue to be available for the duration of the lock-down at dioceseofshrewsbury.org.

DAILY READINGS: For those who miss hearing the Word during daily masses but don’t have their own Missal you can read them daily on the Vatican News website under Word of the Day (scroll to the bottom of the page). Other websites also have these readings available. The Wednesday Word website www.wednesdayword.org/parish is another excellent resource and there is a link to it from the Christ the King home page.
