St Peter and All Souls and Our Lady of Lourdes churches as of the 23rd March will not be open to the public due to the government decision to close all public meeting places including places of worship, until further notice. We will endeavour to keep you updated on this situation.
Francis cites the Catechism to encourage the faithful to express contrition, and make resolve to return to Sacrament as soon as it becomes possible
As the Government has imposed restrictions on movements and gatherings, which includes Masses and Services being cancelled and all churches closed All Souls will lose much of the revenue raised through the weekly collection and wall boxes which now have a significant effect on the Parish finances.
We therefore ask you kindly to seriously consider paying your weekly collection by direct debit if you do not already do so.
If you can round up whatever you pay weekly into a monthly figure and pay direct to:
HSBC – Account no. 51333151, sort-code 40-36-34 if you bank online.
Alternatively, you can download a standing order mandate (below) to fill in and post to the parish office. Also, if you pay tax please consider gift aiding your collection, this will not be at any extra cost to you.
If you have anything you would like to contribute to the website, or any questions or suggestions, please contact the web editor
When you go out to shop please remember to place a couple of items in the Foodbank collection boxes at supermarkets. They are in need of canned fruit and vegetables, canned meat and fish, long-life milk and juices and other items that can make proper meals (no pasta or baked beans please).
The foodbank will run short if we do not continue to support them as they help some of the most needy in our communities,
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
