Weekly Thoughts

MASSES AT CHRIST THE KING

Hands, Face, SpacePlease sanitise your hands upon entry/exit. Please wear an appropriate face covering at all times within church. Please be aware of social distancing.

You can now sit, stand and kneel throughout the mass but we do ask you remain in your allocated spaceuntil directed to leave by our fabulous stewards. The toilets are now available for use during mass but we ask that you use the wipes available to clean down after yourself ready for the next person. We will continue to bring Holy Communion to you. Congregational singing is still legally not permitted.

Stewards are still required for weekend masses as we have to keep an accurate test and trace record but they are no longer required for weekday masses. I ask that you please scan the QR code on the door as you come in for these masses. Please continue to book in for weekend masses until directed otherwise. You can use this FORM. We do have some availability on the day but booking guarantees you wont be turned away if we have reached our legal capacity. If you book in but do not arrive by 5 minutes after mass has started, your seats may be given away if required.

You may have noticed that the votive candles are back in the lady chapel. Should you wish to light a candle please wait until after mass and youre directed to move by the stewards. We respectfully ask you to take personal responsibility for social distancing in this area.

Even as we move out of Lockdownwe still, as a church, have some restrictions imposed on us by the government. We continue to receive feedback from parishioners on how safe they feel and that is what we strive for. Thank you for your combined efforts in achieving this.

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.

 A Message from the Metropolitan Archbishops

SECOND COLLECTION: This week is the annual Day for Life collection. The basket for this is in the entrance. Your donations will support the work of pro-life organisations as they seek to promote and protect life from conception until its natural death. Thank you

UNWANTED STATUES OF OUR LADY: The school would like to thank you for your kind donations. If you have a spare statue of Our Lady that is looking for a new home please can we have it for the school. You can pass it to them directly or to the parish office and I will pass them on. Thank you.

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION: Due to the unforeseen circumstances of the past sixteen months, we were unable to continue with our Sacramental preparations and celebrations as we usually would have done. Over a few weekends in June and July, we will be having the celebration of First Holy Communion for the children who are currently in Year 4. Due to restrictions, we are unable to have parishioners involved but we would very much appreciate your continued prayers (especially from those of you who were allocated children to pray for before the pandemic started). Our Year 3 children, who we were unable to allocate individual prayer sponsors for, will receive their First Holy Communion in the Autumn term. Please do keep all of our children in your prayers at this time.We look forward to the day when we can celebrate together once again but, until then, know that your support and prayer is very much appreciated by our young children and their families.

PARISH HALL COVID-19 UPDATE: Please be aware that restrictions have not changed regarding any Groups who have been granted permission to use the Parish Hall for their meetings, with one exception. Children under 11 years of age now don't have to wear masks. Nothing else has changed.

Let's be sure our actions do not cause illness amongst our fellow users.
