Church Reopening – Private Prayer

Cardinal Vincent Nichols, President of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, has welcomed the decision that Catholic churches, that can safely do so, will re-open for individual prayer on 15 June.

Cardinal Nichols hopes people will benefit from the ‘sacredness’ of our church spaces and describes it as a “great blessing for individuals and for the benefit of all in society, that church doors will again be open to all who long to pray there for the peace and grace we need today.”

We are finalising our plans for the opening of St Andrew’s. We have set up a page with full details about the church re-opening. Click here to view.

With the present lockdown the parish income has been greatly reduced, because parishioners are unable to make their usual offerings in the collection. 
In the light of this I should be most grateful if parishioners would consider setting up a Standing Order to the parish. 
If you feel you would like to do this, please email me and I shall forward you the parish account details. 
Many thanks for your generosity.  Canon Adrian

100 CLUB

During the current lockdown we cannot run our normal monthly 100 club draw.
Once the lockdown is lifted, and we can return to normal life, we will ensure all the draws that have been missed are played.
If you are due to pay your 100 club weekly membership; please wait until the lockdown situation is lifted before sending your money into church.
