17 October 2021 – 29th Sunday of the Year - Year B
Next Sunday (24th) is Mission Sunday. There will be an additional box for donations.
Fr. John is putting together an updated list for home Communions for those who feel unable to attend Mass. Please put your request in writing to Fr. John so he can organise his Communion round.
The easing of restrictions :
We will no longer need to take names of parishioners attending Masses. Visitors ONLY will be asked to leave their name and contact details.
Although social distancing is no longer required, we will continue with the current two-seat widths between different household groups – please respect the space of others.
Face coverings should still be worn and hands must be sanitised when entering and existing the church.
Holy Communion will remain under one kind only and must be received in the hand.
As good ventilation is considered more important than physical sanitising of benches etc. there will be no general sanitising after each Mass, although the materials will remain for those who wish to use them.
We are able to sing at Mass and hymn books and Mass cards can now be used. As they are only used at the weekend they will be perfectly safe. Please keep your masks on whilst singing.
Sign of Peace – this can be given as safely as we can with a wave or nod to each other.
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be celebrated at 10.30 every weekday.
Saturdays Mass 10.30a.m.
Vigil Mass 5.30p.m.
Sundays Mass 10.30a.m.
Confessions – Fr. John will be available for confession after each Mass. Please contact him on 01463 232136 if you wish to go to confession.
Now that normal Masses have resumed, Fr John asks for your continued support. The situation will be reviewed on a regular basis. There are a number of local people unwell at the moment. Please remember them in your prayers.
If anyone has anything for inclusion in the newsletter please either leave a message on the church answerphone or email to: Ninian@saintninians.org.uk
