Weekly Thoughts

COVID-19 ROUTE MAP GUIDANCE

There are no restrictions imposed upon attendance at Holy Mass and other liturgies. Obviously, we wish to ensure that all feel safe and comfortable in attending our church. As such, for the time being we hope to continue wherever possible with our excellent stewarding/welcoming ministry and associated hygiene measures. The wearing of face coverings is strongly recommended but not compulsory. Please continue to use the Hand Sanitiser available on entry and exit. If you require a little more space, there are laminated notices in the form of a red cross available for you to take on entering church to place on the seat next to you requesting that space be given. We ask parishioners to respect these requests. If anything changes, we will keep you updated and we thank you for your patience, understanding and sensitivity to one another as we move forward together.

For your attention

RETIRING COLLECTION: This Sunday is the annual collection for Home Mission Sunday. Sharing our faith isn’t always easy but it is possible and is worth it. If you are able to contribute then please do.

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION: A group of children from our Primary School will receive the Lord for the first time in Holy Communion on Saturday 2nd October during Masses at 10am and 12.30pm. Please keep in your prayers all the children and their families still preparing to receive their First Holy Communion.

PARISH OUTREACH MINISTRY / FOODBANK / HAMPERS: It is our intention to start a ‘Parish Outreach Ministry.’ We note the excellent work already taking place in supporting the Wirral Foodbank and of course this will continue. In the proposed plan the donated food/goods will still go directly to the foodbank, but a proportion of the donated cash will be distributed directly to those in need of a little support in our parish community and school family. We are already receiving donations of Asda Gift Vouchers and would welcome such vouchers or cash donations. With this support and that of our SVP we will be able to reach out in the name of ‘Christ the King’ to families and others in need of some support. If you would benefit from this assistance or know of anyone who would, please do let us know.

MUSIC MINISTRY: We are delighted to restart our music ministry but to minimise risk we have produced a Hymn Sheet that we will be using for the foreseeable future. Please take your sheet home with you and bring it back for weekend masses. The choir will be leading us on Sunday mornings and Fr Louis at the other weekend masses.

SUNDAY REFRESHMENTS: We are looking to restart our Sunday teas next weekend following a completed risk assessment. We are looking forward to being together socially.

PARISH SUPPORT GROUP: Minutes from the meeting on 19th September are HERE.

STEWARDSHIP NEWSLETTER: As a sign of the times the latest newsletter is online. You can view it HERE, with updates from Caritas, SYMT and more
