SPIRITUAL COMMUNION: For those of us accessing Mass on line or on television, whilst we cannot physically receive the Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, we can receive Spiritual Communion.
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
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Anyone attending Mass at Church will be requested, where possible, to scan the NHS QR code with their mobile phone. (You can download the NHS app from your App site)
THE POPE’S INTENTIONS FOR OCTOBER: The Laity’s Mission in the Church: We pray by the virtue of baptism, the laity, especially women, may participate more in areas of responsibility in the Church.
HEALTH AND SAFETY. Significant effort has been given to maintaining all legal requirements regarding social distancing, sanitising and maintaining the expected protocols for the celebration of Mass. The following points are gentle reminders:
As the weather becomes it is advisable to wear a warm coat if you are attending Mass.
Please start arriving well before the start of Mass to avoid any congestion. Mass starts at 5pm prompt
2m distancing will always be maintained.
You will be allocated a place in church by one of the Stewards.
After Mass you are asked to wait in your place until being invited to leave by one of the Stewards.
Please avoid clustering outside of church.
APPEAL: Following the Government’s decision not to pay for free school meals during the holidays we have been asked by the school governors of St Joseph’s school to appeal to the parish for money donations so hampers can be provided for needy families in school. If you are able to help with this please contact Shauna.
DIOCESAN CERTIFICATE IN PASTORAL MINISTRY: Are you involved in ministry in your parish? Perhaps you don’t think of it in those terms – but you might be an extraordinary minister of Holy Communion, a reader, a steward, a catechist… Perhaps you help with children’s liturgy, write bidding prayers, lead a bible group or simply be one of the many people in all kinds of roles who are ‘co-workers in the vineyard’ in your parish or beyond. Maybe you feel called to do something but do not feel you have the skills or support. If so, then the Certificate in Pastoral Ministry might be just what you need. https://www.liverpoolcatholicresources.com/diploma Starts January 2021.

ABORTION ACT: Tuesday 27th October is the 53rd anniversary of the Abortion Act being passed in England and Wales. Since 1967 over nine million babies have lost their lives to abortion. Millions of women and men have also had to deal with the suffering which so often follows an abortion. Please join us in praying and fasting for the end of abortion in this country on Tuesday 27th October.
