Dear Friends,

To help curtail the spread of Covid 19 our Churches are to close for public worship from Friday 8th ( Now changed to effective immediately) at the latest for a period of, at least, 4 weeks. Mass will continue to be Live-streamed from St Margaret's at 10a.m every day, including Sunday. On Sunday Fr Isaac will celebrate Mass for Francesca Giudice R.I.P on her birthday and I will offer Mass for the People of the Parish. The other intentions that were scheduled will be celebrated as soon as possible and will be printed in the weekly Newsletter.

Funerals, including Requiem Masses in Church, are permitted with a maximum number of 20 people.

Weddings are permitted with a maximum number of 5 people.

Baptisms will have to be rescheduled and I will be in contact with those who had baptisms planned over the next few weeks.

Although we are still unable to exercise pastoral care as we would like, the Sacraments are still available, as has always been the case since the start of the pandemic, to anyone who is seriously ill, either at home, in a care home or in hospital, Please don't hesitate to get in contact.

The essential work of the Saint Vincent de Paul Society carries on thanks to your generosity. Again, anyone in need of help shouldn't hesitate to get in contact.

With best wishes

Fr Chris
