First of all, on this second week of our stewardship campaign, I just want to express my hope that you find this week’s activity during the sermon time to be one of joy and affirmation. It is a spiritual exercise attempting to see and love ourselves as God sees and loves us. We try to recognise just how great the gift of our life is from Him to us. I really recommend that you allow others to be involved in identifying your gifts. In the end it is God whom we credit with these gifts so we are not diving headlong into the sin of pride. So again, enjoy! If you are watching the Mass on-line the leaflet referred to in the sermon can be seen on the “Stewardship” page on this website.
The Bishops have proposed new guidelines about restrictions to combat Covid:
“As stated by HM Government, there is still a risk associated with gathering in enclosed spaces so we need to remain cautious, but try to move forward safely towards a normal lifestyle. The main form of virus transmission is via personal oral or nasal aerosol. Those attending Church may continue to wear a face covering (both nose and mouth) but there is no need for social distancing, although those present should be sensitive to the needs of others. It is clear from scientific evidence that transmission from surfaces is now minimal.”
So, here in St. John Fisher,:
- It is still good practice to sanitise hands on entry.
- It is best practice though not mandatory to wear facial coverings. Please do so unless medically exempt
- Holy water stoups are now refilled but the water will be changed each week
- The Sunday Parish Missals will be reintroduced in due course
- The usual form of church cleaning is deemed sufficient.
- The Sign of Peace may be offered but with respect paid to those who don’t feel comfortable.
- For the time being, Holy Communion must continue to be given under one kind only.
- We will be considering how to conduct our offertory collection Fr Doug
Please could Parishioners renew their car parking permit for 2022. Application forms are at the back of the church. Many thanks to those who have already done so.
