BENEFICE BULLETIN

Sunday 27th September 2020

THE TWENTY-SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Welcome to the Good Shepherd and St Saviour’s for our Sunday Masses, and a particular welcome to any visitors.  Unfortunately we are unable to offer our usual post-Mass hospitality but hope that you’ll enjoy being with us.

 

PLEASE REMEMBER TO KEEP A PERIOD

OF PRAYERFUL SILENCE BEFORE MASS BEGINS

 

‘The Rule of Six’ forbids social interaction before and after Mass

RESUMPTION OF PUBLIC MASSES

If this is your first Sunday back with us, if you’re new to our congregations or here as a visitor, please ask for a copy of the information sheet, also available on the website, listing the dos and don’ts that we need to observe, not least about receiving Holy Communion.  For reasons of cleaning and hygiene we are, as yet, unable to restore the full pre-Lockdown schedule of Masses but will try to ensure, as well as a Sunday Mass in each church and, unless Father David is away, there will also be a morning weekday Mass in each church and one evening Mass a week, hopefully to offer convenient times for everyone.  Holy Hour on Thursday morning is also reinstated. On other days Father David will continue to say Mass to ensure worship is offered daily in the Benefice.
