Unfortunately there is a problem with the boiler at St Michael’s which may not be fixed in time for Mass tomorrow evening; so an “extra layer” might be a good idea.
Sunday Mass will return in our Churches on 25th October.
The first Mass will be at St Michael's with church opening at 9am and Mass starting at 9:15am. Mass at St Joseph's will follow with church opening at 11am and Mass starting at 11:15am.
Mass Intention at St Michael's will be for "Those who have died in the Parish and have not had a Funeral Service in our Churches during the Pandemic due to both our Churches being closed".
Mass Intention at St Joseph's will be for "The People of the Parish".
Booking seats for these Masses can be made next week on Wednesday and Thursday 22rd & 23rd of October between 10am and 12 noon by calling 07709 091786.
Thank you to everyone who has been using our Telephone Booking System for a place at Mass. You are welcome to come along to Mass without booking, but as numbers attending are increasing it may become difficult to find you a seat if you have not booked.
As numbers increase, we may look to adding a further opportunity to attend Mass but to do that we will need more volunteers to come along to act as Stewards. We have a great team who have helped since our churches opened but a few more parishioners joining that team will help greatly to share the load.
If you can help, then please let us know the days/times you would be available and whether you can be available at St Joseph's, St Michael's or both churches by emailing the Parish office at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Marc is a student for the Priesthood for the Diocese and is studying at the English College in Rome.
Marc received the Ministry of Acolyte by Bishop Marcus last Tuesday at Leeds Cathedral.
He will be here initially for his month's placement, and then he will have St Joseph's as a base when he is in England until, God willing, he is Ordained to the Sacred Priesthood.
I am sure you will make Marc very welcome when you see him and keep him and the rest of our Students for the Priesthood in your prayers.
You can watch the role of Acolyte being conferred on Marc by Bishop Marcus by going to the ‘News Page’ of the Diocese of Leeds website (https://www.dioceseofleeds.org.uk/news/
