DOES THE CATHOLIC CHURCH HAVE A FUTURE? … 

HAVE YOUR SAY …

  


In 2023 the Bishops will gather at a Synod in Rome to discuss the future of the Catholic Church and WE have been given an opportunity to contribute to that discussion. Don’t miss that opportunity for our families and future loved-ones. The Diocese have asked us: “What is the Holy Spirit saying to us now as Church?  What are the opportunities that are opening up?  How might the Church look tomorrow?  This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, a fantastic chance to have a voice. Tell us and share your dream for the future of the Church.”  Our Synodal Journey 2021-2023 - Brentwood Diocese (dioceseofbrentwood.net)

A Personal Message from Father Anthony

While Mass is still being celebrated every Sunday at 11.00am and on Monday and Tuesday’s at 09.15am I do appreciate that you may find it difficult or unsettling to attend a gathering at Mass at the moment. Please be assured that, when we meet as a parish, all of you are remembered in our prayers.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continuing generosity in these strange and difficult times, without which we could neither maintain our parish life and parish family with the worship of Christ in the way we do now. I am very aware of the straightened times in which we live, and I marvel at the kindness of all of you who continue to help me in the vital work of upkeeping our parish.

As, with yourselves, the bills for the parish do keep arriving!

These bills are normally met by your generosity of your donations to the weekly offerings.

You will understand that, in these strange times, the offertory collections are much reduced.

While you may not feel able at the moment to attend Mass I am asking that you consider how you could continue to support the parish financially for the good of the future of the parish.

Opportunities for giving can be found in the ‘Offerings / Gift Aid tab of the website.
