“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 Spir in 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

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 NOVEMBER: People Who Suffer from Depression

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

SYNOD 2021-2023: Last month Pope Francis launched the 2021-2023 Synod. The Synodal Process is a pilgrimage of the whole People of God in discerning the way the Church needs to be at this moment in time. Every parish in the Diocese has been formally invited to respond to the bishop following various consultations and activities. Our feedback is valuable. At Wednesday’s Reflection Meeting it was agreed to establish a ‘Core Group’ who would seek the views of people within the parish community and support the Synod activities. The aim is that everyone has an opportunity to contribute to the process and have their voices heard. We hope to include representation from all parish groups as well as the school. Please be encouraged to join the group so that you can help to support and guide this important process. If you would like to help please email or or call 07841 038633 and we hope to start meeting in the week commencing Monday 15th November. Meanwhile please continue to pray that the Holy Spirit will guide this process, help our voices to be heard and our actions make a positive difference to the future of the Church. Thank you.

A MESSAGE FROM CAFOD: Thank you for supporting our Climate Crisis Appeal for our recent Family Fast Day. Every donation helps us in our work and is gratefully received.

Our parish raised an amazing £470! Please see a lovely letter of thanks sent to us which is on the ‘Your Community” section of the website.

Cafod also ask us to: Please pray for the success of the upcoming UN climate talks in Glasgow, COP26, from 31 October to 12 November. There are prayer cards at the back of church; please do take one and pray that that world leaders will put the needs of marginalised communities around the world, those most affected by climate change, right at the heart of these climate talks. For more information see

May the Holy Spirit inspire all political leaders at COP26 and instill in them the courage and gentleness to implement fairer solutions for the most vulnerable.

LIVE SIMPLY CAMPAIGN: The October events were really enjoyable. The rain stopped just as we set off on our walk through Anston Stones and when we paused for our reflection the beauty of the forest seemed to envelope us with its peace

The Tour of the Botanic Gardens was lovely; we saw the trees changing into their glorious autumn colours and really enjoyed the day together.

The Volunteers who helped to clear the school woodland area made a huge difference; they transformed an overgrown neglected mess into a fantastic learning facility.

November: The theme for November is Help the Poor, Help the Environment and Reduce your Carbon Footprint, there are lots of ideas on the separate sheet at the back of church. If you have any more ideas please share them on the What’s App group or send them to Emma Slack to add to the website
