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

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 https://www.thykingdomcome.global/resources/resources-catholic-church and copies can be ordered via https://www.cpo.org.uk/static.aspx?key=product&q=113 (individual copies) or free larger orders https://www.cpo.org.uk/static.aspx?key=product&q=114 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 siobhantylermorley@gmail.com. There is a small charge of £5per CD to cover production costs.


FUND RAISING FOR KIVETON: Work on the church in KIveton continues. 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.
