The Prayer Course
On Tuesdays we are running a new 8 week set of sessions online, with video input on prayer, and friendly small group discussion.
The acclaimed “Prayer Course” broadly follows the Lord’s Prayer, with each session providing useful insight into one form of prayer. It is a great way to grow and deepen your prayer life. Each session is complete in itself – you do not need to attend every week.
The links to access the sessions are published on our home page and on the news feed one and a half hours before each meeting.
The sessions will be :
Come to the session on Tuesday (details in what’s on above) and give it a try. And just get in contact if you want to know more email@example.com

The Archbishops' Letter
This has just been published on the resumption of collective worship
With our churches closed our income has gone down significantly, whereas our costs haven’t changed. There are a number of ways in which you can donate to us.
On Saturday there is a 6pm Mass at St John the Baptist and on Sundays there will be 11:30 Mass at St Joseph’s and 11 at St John the Baptist. Please be aware that strict safety measures are in place which limit church capacity – both the Sunday Masses may reach capacity early so that we will unfortunately need to send latecomers away.
During the week this week there are Masses at 10am on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at St John the Baptist, and at 6pm on Wednesday and Friday at St Joseph’s There is no Mass on Monday.
The weekday Masses, and the 11:30 Sunday Mass are streamed live on youtube.
Confession is also back – on Saturdays from 11 to 11.45 at St Joseph’s – St Joseph’s has a new enclosed area in the church which enables us to conduct confessions safely.
If you come to Mass we are continuing to take serious safety measures. You will be required to wear a mask, and to sanitise your hands on entry. We will take a list of names in case it is required by the contact tracing service. Only two people, or one household group can sit on a row, and alternate rows will be empty.
In particular look out for our resources pages, providing links to good things to watch, listen to, or read. Also the Prayers of the Faithful are now published weekly on the newsletter page. We would encourage all parishioners to
submit potential prayers by email to the office, so that increasingly these do become the prayers of all the faithful.
