A message from Fr. Brian as we return to Mass
The past months have been very difficult for all of us. I think particularly of those who have lost loved ones, the customs and rituals which give so much support at such a time have been put on hold. The ability to express our emotions and feelings have been muted and made that much more difficult.
Yet amidst all the restrictions we have found ways to support one another though not as we would have wished.
In all of this there have been amazing examples of care and support, a wonderful coming together in a time of separation, showing the strength of our collective character as together we coped with an unprecedented challenge and together we have come through. But we know it is not over yet and our continued vigilance and effort is required to see us through.
For our parish and all Faith communities it has been testing time, our faith is what supports us through the difficulties and challenges of life. Through faith we grow spiritually. As a community of faith we grow in Christian love and support for one another.
It is therefore with a sense of gratitude that I am happy to announce that we can return to public worship from Monday 29th June, feast of Ss. Peter and Paul.
Mass times will resume at 10.00am Monday to Friday and 6pm Vigil Mass on Saturday and 10.00am and 12noon Mass on Sundays.
The return to Mass will be a great source of joy to many, but we must also remember that the capacity of the Church will be reduced to take account of social distancing to a maximum of 50 people.
I’d like to take this opportunity to say thanks to all our parish volunteers for their enthusiastic response in helping to make sure our return to the celebration of the Eucharist is safe for everybody.
As we continue to move forward with hope. The Lord asks us from His cross to rediscover the life that awaits us. We can take courage from the words of Pope Francis when he says, “Let us recognise and foster the Grace that lives within us. Let us not quench the wavering flame that never falters, and let us allow hope to be rekindled.
