Please note that the number indicates the pew allocation not the number of people

I will give those attending Mass on the 1st and 2nd a List that will ensure they have their booking secure for the remainder of the Month but I am aware that some people have not yet returned their forms and others have not collected one. I am therefore not going to allow for late applications to fill any remaining slots.

Please note also that there are some people who have already indicated that they will not be coming on the first weekend but are booked in for the remainder of the month.

All Key Workers have the slots they asked for. I am still very short of stewards.

Only Authorised people may enter the Sacristy

Those authorised to enter the Sacristy.

The Parish Priest. Visiting Priests; The Parish Deacon; The Parish Safeguarding Officer; The Parish Sacristan and Deputy Sacristan

The Parish Secretary; The Parish Treasurer. In addition, Alter Servers while on duty and under the supervision of the Sacristan or their deputy.

All other ministers should assemble on the assigned benches in the Sanctuary.

There is no access to the Rectory or Parish Office except for the Parish Priest, The Parish Secretary and the Parish Treasurer

These rules also apply to the Polish Community.

The allocation for the remainder of the month will be issued on Sunday 2nd of August after adjustments for late forms.

You must use a parish booking form and have your name placed on the list before you can attend a Mass.


If your name is not on the list you will not be admitted

There will be a code of practice with guidelines issued in advance and people will need chose one mass and no one will be permitted to attend more than one, for any reason. You will be required wear face masks, these will not be provided for members of the congregation but advice will be made available for where they can be obtained. However if there are people willing to make cloth face masks and donate them, please email me on
jamescaulfield@europe.com .


While the floor is being restored I will be conducting weekday masses in the garden if weather permits or in my Office In this way a limited number of up to 8 people may attend in person. I would ask that you cooperate with each other and so ensure that the maximum number of people can attend over the period of a week. I would suggest that no one attends more than one weekday mass during the week to ensure that this is possible. This is just a guide and I am relying upon each of you to be patient and am sure that will good will and cooperation the maximum number of people will be able to receive Holy Communion at least once during the week.

If you have a member of your family who is shielding then it will be possible for you to borrow a pyx and take communion home to them.

The obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains suspended until further notice.


There will be no Polish Language Mass until all CV19 restrictions have been lifted and a new agreement with the Polish Mission has been arranged.

The Church Porch will open on Monday 15th June.


It will be open from 11:00 until 13:00 and from 17:00-19:00.

In adition there will be an opportunity for private prayer in the parish memorial garden.

This is phase one in restoring the church to normal use.

Phase two will be the supervised reopening of the main body of the church once the work on the floor and the deep clean have been completed.

Phase three will be a limited return to social distant public worship.

Phase Four the resumption of normal church services.

The work on the floor and the deep clean are being arranged and should be complete by July 14th (Earlier if possible, the contractor has generously agreed to do the work at cost price but the firm are busy with existing contracts.)

Live Streaming of the Mass and other services will continue until further notice.


Generous Donation

I wish to express my thanks and the gratitude of the Parish for a very generous donation from Mrs Zofia Postawa. The substantial sum, I have been asked not to give the exact sum on this page, is in part as a memorial to her son, Witold. In addition to this generous donation Mrs Postawa has also provided over £1000 for foundation masses to be said for members of her family.

With the Quinquennial report due this year and various other works needed to be completed to ensure the safety of the church, and the return to safe use of currently inaccessible areas. This money will be put to very good use over the coming few years. It may also enable other projects to be considered in the longer term that will allow us to consider works of a more aesthetic nature.

When the restrictions are lifted I will convene a parish meeting at which the treasurer will reveal the exact sum and we can consider the options as to how the money can be wisely spent.

Please offer a prayer of thanks for our kind benefactor, Zofia Postawa


Spiritual Communion ion i Prayer of St Alphonsus

My Jesus,
I believe that you are present in this Holy Sacrament of the altar.
I love you above all things
and I passionately desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,
come spiritually into my soul so that I may unite myself wholly to you
now and forever.
Amen.

Recorded Programmes.
The Angelus Promise is currently available as a recording as are all the Masses said so far.
Over the coming days I shall add Recordings of the Rosary, The Stations of the Cross and a penitential meditation/examination of conscience.
