Dear Parishioners and friends of St. John’s and St. Bernadette’s
My first words are to say that each and everyone of you are in my thoughts and prayers as we enter into an uncertain and concerning future. Our first reaction when crisis’ come along is to gather and pray. This crisis however is different and we are being forced to withdraw and isolate ourselves from one another. However, as a people of faith, we are never alone. We have the Holy and Blessed Trinity with us always.
In light of the statement made by government on the 16th March 2020. We have all been asked to put into place systems of withdrawal from large gatherings of people. Many people have asked if we will still be having Mass at St. John’s and St. Bernadette’s. An official decision about this will be made at noon on Wednesday 18th March when the Conference of Bishops of England and Wales will announce further measures to keep us safer. As soon as this announcement is made, it will be placed on the Website. In the meantime please look after one another by asking what we have been asked to do by the government.
If you know of anyone vulnerable person who needs practical support at this time, please contact the Parish Office on firstname.lastname@example.org
God Bless. Fr. Tom
