PRAYER - ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.

READERS FOR ZOOM MASSES: If you would like to read for any of the Zoom Masses during this lockdown period, would you please let your Parish Administrator know or contact Tracey, Parish Administrator at Corpus Christi on the Parish email: wsm.corpuschristi@cliftondiocese.com.  Please state when you could be available and give your permission for your email address to be handed over to Jean Davies for the period of those Masses, or contact Jean directly. If you didn’t read for the last lockdown, we will explain to you what is involved. Thank you to all who have volunteered. 

                       

URGENT:  Volunteers needed to help with stewarding in the church for private prayer. If you could spare a couple of hours between 10.30am-12.30pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, whilst we are in lockdown, please let Tracey know on the parish office email: wsm.corpuschristi@cliftondiocese.com

PARISH OFFICE:  Following recent government guidelines, all of the parish offices  will be closed from Thursday 5th November until Wednesday 2nd December. The parish administrators will be working from home and can be contacted via the parish email. Please refrain from ringing the parish office unless you need to speak to Canon Tom specifically. 

FOODBANK OLOL
 
Thank you to the parishioners who have donated so far - a £120 has been raised.  This will be spent on extra goodies for Christmas but also to help boost the foodbank stocks in general.  We have lists of what is required and the demand is greater than ever.   Barbara and Penny will be making the Christmas delivery in the middle of December so if anyone else would like to contribute financially, please feel free to do so.  Thank you for your generosity so far.
FIRST HOLY COMMUNION 2021
I am sure that everyone is aware of the massive disruption COVID-19 has had on the First Holy Communion programme for 2020. Despite all the efforts of the Church and the Catechist team, we cannot seem to cross the line and complete the programme to enable the children to receive their First Holy Communion
Therefore, the programme has had to be postponed again until such time we can complete this safely. Please see the newsletter and website for further details regarding the 2021 programme.

 

If you do not have access to the internet you can also join the Mass by phone and then you can listen in as a telephone call:
 
Dial   0203 481 5240
 
Then when instructed by the voice over the phone enter the meeting number  :  
 
922 2054 7539 followed by the # key (found next to 0 button)
 
Then when they ask for your User ID just press the # key
 
Finally when asked enter the Passcode 123 followed by the # key


You will then automatically join the Mass when it starts


(Calls should be charged at the standard call rate - which could be included in you phone plan)
