We celebrate the triumph of God’s grace in the lives of ordinary Christian people like ourselves.  We focus upon our divinely-conceived final destiny, which is a full sharing in the life of God.

Universal prayer intention for November
We pray that people who suffer from depression or burn-out will find support and a light that opens them up to life.

Please note that face-coverings are no longer mandatory, but remain strongly encouraged by the Government in indoor spaces, especially when moving around. Also, whilst physical-distancing requirements have also been removed, please be aware that some people may wish to have space around them.  Sensitivity towards others is the guiding principle.  The current Risk Assessment is displayed in the porch.

**Please kindly note and observe the following, with regard to Holy Communion (if you are using a face-covering):

·        Please loosen face-covering as you approach the place of distribution (please do not approach the priest with the covering still in place)

·        Receive the Sacred Host onto the hand or tongue and consume immediately

·        Replace face-covering

·        Return to place

All Souls Day is on Tuesday.  Please place the names of those you would like remembered by name at the 12noon Mass on the list in church.  Please be careful to add names in the right section of the list and to write legibly!

Sunday Coffee? We can do this, but only if there are enough volunteers to make a rota.  If you can help with this, please let Elizabeth Battersby-Hill know.
