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

WALK FOR WATER WITH CAFOD THIS LENT: CAFOD Walk for Water Lent Appeal. Please donate to the CAFOD Walk for Water Appeal this lent. We take clean water for granted; it just comes from the taps in our homes. One in three people in the world don’t have access to clean water close to their homes. The money you give will help people like Abdella and Hagos in Ethiopia who are struggling to cope in an increasingly hotter and drier climate. Abdella walks for 10 hours a day to collect water for his family. Hagos and his family nearly starved due to drought, but thanks to our Church family and support like yours, CAFOD provided him with solar-powered water pumps. Hagos and his neighbours now have flowing water to cultivate their land. Water is precious and we take it for granted, please help! Ways to Donate:

Family Fast Day is on Friday 26 February. Envelopes will be given out at mass this weekend and collected on Sunday 28th.

• Put your donation in an envelope, label it CAFOD Walk for Water and drop it through the door of the presbytery

• Sponsor St Joseph’s Dinnington Walk for Water Team on Just Giving.

Nine parishioners, are taking part in the 40 day Walk for Water Challenge, we will be walking 10,000 steps a day for 40 days in solidarity with Abdella and Hagos. You can either sponsor a team member when they ask, or click on the link on the Parish What’s App Group, or click on the link below and press donate to a team member. https://www.justgiving.com/team/st-josephs-dinnington-walk-for-water
