MASSES AT CHRIST THE KING

In keeping with government ‘test and trace’ measures we are still asking parishioners to book in for weekend masses. There is a form available HERE and to take away from church for you to use. You can also send an email to the parish email account 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 9am on Fridays. Please ensure you book in advance for ALL weekend masses as we cannot guarantee space on the day and you may be turned away. Masses are getting close to capacity.

I appreciate that there is information overload with the different rules in different settings but here at CTK ours are clear. You must wear your mask and sanitise your hands upon entering the church. You must sit in assigned places and maintain a 1m+ distance from all others outside of your ‘bubble’ at all times. Once seated please remain seated until mass has ended. These rules are for your own safety and those of your fellow parishioners. Thank you for your support in keeping our church open.

Please read the latest copy of the parish newsletter as this will be an important mechanism for keeping you appraised of developments. You can read the current copy of the newsletter by clicking HERE.

You can watch recordings of Fr. Tom celebrating Sunday Mass by following THIS LINK. The readings for Sunday are available HERE. You can read Bishop Mark's pastoral letter HERE.

For your attention

 A Message from the Metropolitan Archbishops

ST ANSELM’S COLLEGE: Entrance Exam will be held on Tuesday 13th October. If you would like to register your child then please visit www.st-anselms.com for further details

MISSIO RED BOXES: Current restrictions, which may not improve for some time, will make it harder for Red Boxes to be emptied in the usual way this year. There-fore we would ask Red Box holders, if they can, to submit their donations by dropping them through the Presbytery door. It would be very helpful if you could count and bank your own collection if you have collected coins throughout the year. Please place money or cheques (made payable to APF Mill Hill) in an envelope marked ‘Red Box’ and your name and address, by Monday 19 October. Do not worry if you are not able to drop off – just wait and you will be contacted in due course. Thank you for your understanding and your support. Missio helps some of the poorest people in the world and their fundraising efforts, as for so many charities, have been hit hard by the pandemic, so every penny counts.

PARISH CENTRE NEWS 50/50 CLUB: As you may know from previous newsletters we postponed renewals in May due to the pandemic. Since then we needed an electrical upgrade to the sum of £2476 which depleted our finances somewhat. Now that we are returning to some sort of normality, (please God it lasts), we would like to commence the process of renewals in the coming weeks. We hope that as many as possible can renew their memberships in support of our Parish Hall. As ever the choice is yours. Many thanks.

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.
For those who are after something a bit different you can also stream masses from the Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham www.walsingham.org.uk

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.

GIVING TO THE PARISH: I would like to take a moment to thank to those who have continued to donate to the church even though our doors have been closed. We will not hold collections during masses but collection plates will be available in church to put in your offertory envelopes etc. You can still donate online via our website or via standing order should you wish. THANK YOU for your support during this difficult time.

CHEQUES: Can I remind parishioners that any cheques please be made payable to CHRIST THE KING CHURCH. The bank will no longer accept any other variation. Thank you for your support
