Welcome

IMPORTANT: Coronavirus (COVID-19) :

Parish Updates July 2020:

The Return of Mass in Church

We are pleased to confirm that we have been given Diocesan approval to celebrate Mass publicly in Church from Wednesday 22nd July 2020 at 1 metre plus social distancing with the condition that all parishioners wear face masks in church and that the church is cleaned after each Mass. Whilst the church has a supply of masks at the moment, to keep church expenditure low, you can help us by providing your own mask.

There will currently be 3 Masses per week in church as follows:

 

Wednesday at 10.30 am

Saturday Vigil Mass at 6.30 pm

Sunday at 10.30 am

 

As per the previous guidance for private prayer and the outdoor Masses, please use hand sanitiser, wear face masks and record your details for track and trace at the entrance. Please also keep to at least 1 metre social distancing. The church one way system remains in place as with the previous private prayer sessions. The designated seating on each pew is clearly signed. Stewards will be available to help seat you appropriately and safely. When receiving communion at the end of Mass, please walk down the centre aisle within the centre lines marked, and leave immediately down the left aisle to leave.

The new safe capacity of the church ranges from 43 (assuming all parishioners are from a different household) to 73 (assuming all parishioners in groups of 4 can sit together from the same household (max 3 on the front, shorter pew).

As the number of available pews in church has now increased at 1 metre plus social distancing, and as the number of Masses gradually increases, we would be most grateful for more volunteers to help steward and clean the church. Please email the parish at sacredwil@gmail.com with your details and times of availability if you can help.

Online Giving to the Parish now available

As you will be aware, whilst the church is closed, we have not been able to take our usual offertory collections, which has resulted in a sizeable drop in our income.

For those Parishioners who normally give in the collection at Mass and wish to help the Parish at this time, an online donation page to allow you to donate to the Parish is now available via the link below.

Please be aware that a minimum donation of £5 is requested if giving in this way, and you have the option to make a regular monthly donation or a one-off donation.

We know that for some these are worrying times financially. Please only give what you can afford.

Thank you for your support.

You can also Gift Aid your donation to help the Parish further. If you want to Gift Aid your donation, please tick the box shown on the screen even if you have previously completed a Gift Aid Declaration form in favour of the Parish for regular giving made by Offertory Envelope or Standing Order.

Parish Updates March 2020

Please note that following the recent state of emergency announced by the government, the church will now be closed until further notice.

 

 We must now make full use of the opportunities of live streaming and continue being united in prayer. As suggested by the Bishop, we might also recommend that in the daily physical exercise which allows many people to leave their homes, the devotional practice that our parishioners greet the Real Presence of Christ in the Tabernacle from outside of our churches as they pass with a prayer, an act of spiritual communion or a simple sign of the Cross.

 

 Daily Mass will continue to be celebrated privately by Father Anthony Cogliolo in church.

 

 Masses at the Cathedral & Wythenshawe may be viewed and streamed here: http://www.dioceseofshrewsbury.org/about-us/live-masses

 

 Masses at St Albans, Macclesfield may also be viewed here:

 A document detailing “Prayers during a time of flu & illness” may be found below.
