The Bishops’ Conference has released new COVID guidance for churches in England and Wales. Noting that the main form of virus transmission is “via personal oral or nasal aerosol”, the guidance recognises that people may choose to continue wearing a face covering. However, there will be no requirement for formal social distancing in church buildings. Holy water stoups may also be refilled. To see all the changes, click here.
Specific guidance for each church in our parish can be found here:
St Bernadette, St Michael, SS Peter & Paul.
The Bulletin is now ready to download from the home page.
The first of our meetings take place today (Saturday) at 3.00pm in each of our three churches. The second set of meetings will be on Saturday 5th February. Please note that the third meeting has been moved forward to February 19th so that we can collate our comments and feedback to the diocese by the end of February.
The bulletin is now ready to download from the home page. If you are unable to attend any of the meetings, we may be having a zoom meeting in February. You can also give feedback on our new page by clicking on the SYNOD 2021-23 page.
If you are coming to SS Peter & Paul for Mass at the moment, you will discover even more road works and extra traffic lights. So please leave more time than usual in order to get there.
Also ignore the sign that says "Road Closed" because it isn't!!

As we continue to celebrate the Most Holy Season of Christmas, we now begin the new year of 2022. We are still surrounded by much uncertainty, but the truth we celebrate at Christmas assures us to always look forward to the future with faith, hope and charity. The first reading from the Mass for New Year's Day, the Solemnity of the Mother of God gives us the wonderful ancient blessing of Moses:
May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord let his face shine on you and be gracious to you.
May the Lord uncover his face to you and bring you peace.”
The bulletin is now ready to download from the Home Page. Happy New Year!
