“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 that every baptized person may be engaged in evangelization, available to the mission, by being witnesses of a life that has the flavor of the Gospel.

A MESSAGE FROM BISHOP RALPH: Appointment of Director of Youth Ministry

“I am pleased to inform you that following national advertising we interviewed for the post of Director of Youth Ministry last Friday, and appointed Susan McDonald.

Sue has a huge amount of experience working with young people in the Church having worked with the Salesian Sisters in London and Cumbria, and then 9 years in a national role for the Salesians of Don Bosco. The Salesians, as you may be aware, have a particular charism for working with young people.

Sue was also a board member of CYMFed (Catholic Youth Ministry Federation) for 9 years, the agency that helps deliver the mission of the Bishops’ Conference in terms of Youth Ministry, made up of the all the Catholic dioceses of England & Wales plus religious orders and movements in the Church.

It is with this background of experience that Sue starts a new chapter, working with young people in our diocese aged 11-18, and developing our diocesan youth ministry.

Sue will take up this post as soon as possible, and I’m sure you will join me in welcoming her, when she starts this important role.

Yours sincerely in Christ

Bishop Ralph”
