“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

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.



We pray for those who risk their lives while fighting for fundamental rights under dictatorships, authoritarian regimes and even in democracies in crisis.

A MESSAGE FROM FR ANDY: Fr Andy wishes to extend his thanks for the lovely Easter cards and wishes he has received and to also thank everyone who helped with the preparations for the Easter services and to all those who took part in them. Given we weren’t able to gather together last Easter and despite the Covid restrictions this year a wonderful celebration was held in our Parish via live church services and live zoom stream.

WALK FOR WATER WITH CAFOD THIS LENT: The Cafod Walk for Water team send a massive thank you to everyone who sponsored us.

The total so far is £2730. That will provide a reliable clean water supply for three communities and 9 bikes for Water Engineers to service the pumps. The money you have given will transform lives. It's usually the job of women and girls to fetch the water and often they have to walk miles to get it. Imagine them being able to get water from a tap close to their homes. It's wonderful that a team of 10 women, with your help, will change the lives of women in Ethiopia. They will never know us but they will definitely remember us. Maybe they will have a veg patch to grow veg for the family and have enough left to sell at the market and have extra money to help their families.

The 10 of us have been walking for 40 days, we have logged 4,425930 steps that's 2,213 miles !!

Between us, we have walked the equivalent of Dinnington to Rome via Paris and Lourdes. And then, with the help of a virtual ferry, we sailed to the Holyland. to continue our pilgrimage to Nazareth and on to Jerusalem. At the moment, in our imaginations, we are poised near the Mount of Olives ready for the procession into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday tomorrow. Then we'll definitely be waving our palms and singing Hosanna !!! 😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇 Walk for Water Lent Appeal.”

THY KINGDOM COME: A message from Greg Ryan, Director of Adult Formation, Doicese of Hallam. “You may have already heard about the UK churches initiative called "Thy Kingdom Come", praying for all aspects of spreading the Gospel, which takes place between Ascension and Pentecost. I know that some Hallam parishioners have taken part in previous years.

A number of resources which may be useful to individuals and parish groups have been made available by Teresa Carvalho. You can find downloads of the Catholic Resources via and copies can be ordered via (individual copies) or free larger orders while stocks last. “

A suggestion is also made regarding identifying Parish Champions. If you are interested in being a "Parish Champion" for this initiative, Greg asks that you discuss this first with Fr Andy and then let him know so that people can be connected at the diocesan level.

ECHOES OF ANGELS: A CD of peaceful and beautiful hymns and Mass songs has been produced by our very own Anna Bownes-Webster and Siobhan Tyler-Morley along with Phil Hall on guitar and vocals. The trio have previously performed the songs at a couple of beautifully spiritual Taize evenings in Church and by popular demand produced the CD which is entitled Echoes of Angels. If you haven’t got your copy yet you can obtain one from Siobhan by phoning: 07732 852184 or drop her an email at There is a small charge of £5per CD to cover production costs.

TWIN MY VACCINE: UNICEF are raising funds to deliver 2 billion COVID vaccines across low and middle income countries including to the most remote places. Donations can be made to UNICEF on line or by ringing 0300 330 5699. There is also a Just Giving page that has been set up by Rowan and Scott Patterson if you prefer to give via that option (They have raised over £42,000 so far). This is a very worthy cause and in the long run keeps us all safe. It costs about £4 per person to vaccinate us in the UK. Could you consider matching the cost of your vaccine so someone else can receive theirs?

FUND RAISING FOR KIVETON: Please visit the Kiveton Project item on the website to find out more information on the restoration project for Blessed William Richardson, Kiveton and also to find how you can make a donation on line to help with this vital project. Please note that we will also accept cash or cheque donations marked clearly ‘BWR’ which can be passed to Fr Andy or any members of the Reflection Group. The target amount we need to achieve is £14,000. This is to meet the costs of roof repairs, essential electrical work, interior renovation, and redecoration. To comply with all health and safety requirements this work must be completed before the Diocese will allow the chapel to reopen. Some funding has already come from the Diocese and the parish is passionately committed to financially supporting the reopening of the chapel and the amount raised to date is £4100.

PLEASE REMEMBER OUR SICK ESPECIALLY IN THESE DIFFICULT TIMES: George Blow & his Grandma, Mary Brady, Christopher Browne, Eileen Butterfield, Jim Chandler, Peggy Cummins, Gillian Gee, Brendan Handley, Robert Hume, Sophie Hughes, Ged Krotki, Kumba, Pat Luton, Isabel Main-Reade, Haylen Markillie, Franz Muller, John Parker, Kate Patterson, Tom Rutherford, Sandra Sherratt, Olive Stafford, Robert Stock, Pat Vickers, Claire Watt, and Michel
