A MESSAGE FROM FR ANDY: MASSES ON ZOOM
“It has been suggested that while we are having zoom Masses that we might be able to join in with the Mass on line more fully. The idea is to have ready at Mass time some bread and wine in your own home and when it is time for Holy Communion, we can all share in the Eucharistic celebration in a much richer way. So when I, as the priest, consecrate the bread and wine, those on zoom having the bread and wine in their presence are able to all eat and drink and share the same Eucharistic meal together. Hopefully this will help us to feel that we are still a faith community and close to the Lord and close to one another.”
For those unable to partake as above and who wish to receive Spiritual Communion the Catholic Bishops Conference offers the following prayer for recitation:
Oh 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 at this moment receive You sacramentally come spiritually into my soul.
so that I may unite myself wholly to you now and forever. Amen
Please see below Zoom Mass details for this week:

PRAYER FOR THE YEAR OF ST JOSEPH:
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son; in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too, show yourself a father and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage, and defend us from every evil.
THE POPE’S INTENTIONS FOR SEPTEMBER: An Environmentally Sustainable Lifestyle
We pray that we all will make courageous choices for a simple and environmentally sustainable lifestyle, rejoicing in our young people who are resolutely committed to this.
CHRISM MASS: The Chrism Mass will take place at St Peter in Chains Doncaster at 11 am on 8 September, the Feast of Our Lady’s Birthday. This will be the first Diocesan celebration since the start of the pandemic and all are welcome.
YOUNG CHRISTIAN CLIMATE NETWORK RELAY WALK:
On Sunday 5th September, the Young Christian Climate Network (YCCN) relay to COP26 reaches Sheffield, having begun on 11 June all the way down in St Ives.
To find out more about the YCCN, click here, and to see more about the relay; why they are walking; what they are asking of the UK government; and how you can support them; click here.
Below is the proposed timetable for welcoming the young pilgrims to Sheffield on Sunday 5th September (timings approximate):
The walkers are expected to arrive at St. Mary’s Bramall Lane around 4.30pm, having walked from Chesterfield via Dronfield. They will be greeted by Bishop Ralph along with Bishop Pete Wilcox of Sheffield Anglican Diocese. St. Mary’s will provide the young people with drinks and toilet facilities so there will be a short rest there.
People wishing to be there to greet them at St. Mary’s are asked to get there around 4pm.
After the pause at St. Mary’s, the walk will continue up the Moor to the Anglican Cathedral for 5pm, where Bishop Ralph and Bishop Pete Wilcox will be invited to speak.
Alternatively, there will be a Climate Sunday service live-streamed in the Cathedral at 4pm for those who wish to attend and wait for the walkers there. It will have ended by 5pm.
At the Cathedral there will be other activities taking place, planned by Cathedral staff. The event will end with Taizé singing (around 6 – 6.30pm).
Faith leaders and politicians will be invited to St. Mary’s and/or the Cathedral. It is not to be a platform for politicians, however. This is the young people’s witness, and an opportunity for faith communities to show their strength of feeling about our destructive treatment of our common home and the injustices attending it.
On Monday 6th September, the walk will set off from the city centre to Bamford – the suggested route passing through parts of Endcliffe, Fulwood and on over Lodge Moor. If you live near this part of the route and would like to acknowledge them or accompany them on their way a short while, please do get in touch with Columba for more details: email@example.com
Anyone can go on the yccn.uk website to check out the overall plan. The network is also using an app called ‘Slack’ which allows for more detailed communication between people wanting to volunteer support in specific areas.
Please do come and greet the young pilgrims if you can, or keep up to date with their progress!
BLESSED WILLIAM RICHARDSON, KIVETON: The church in Kiveton will reopen on Saturday 11th September for Mass at 6.00pm. (note change of time from 6.30). The church has had some refurbishment and decorating done and is looking lovely.
