With immediate effect, all public worship in Catholic churches is suspended until further notice. This is to support the country and civil and NHS authorities in keeping people safe and managing the spread of the Covid-19 virus. All parish Masses, prayer groups, meetings and activities are suspended. Further information will be posted on the parish website, including measure being taken to provide for pastoral care during this time and resources so that we can continue to pray at home. Sacred Heart Church will remain open during the day – if you are able and it is safe to do so, pop in, light a candle, say some prayers, maybe pray the Stations of the Cross …… when you come in and leave, use the hand sanitiser.
The parish bulletin will be produced this weekend, will be available to download from the website and will also be left at the back of church for you to call in and take away. It gives the readings for the weekend and the reflections and prayers on the front cover
