A Message from Fr John
Wishing you a very Happy Lent, a season of reflection and renewed hope, calling us to a deeper relationship with God, seeking again God’s mercy and love, and leading us to the celebrations of Palm Sunday, Holy Week, the Triduum and Easter Day and so into the joy of the Easter Season.
We continue to keep in our prayers all who have died from Covid-19 across our land and around the world. We also remember in our prayers our NHS and all who work in our communities in health care that they, with us, are kept safe and well, and we pray too for all involved in the role out of the Covid-19 vaccines.
Our church is only open for Sunday morning Mass at 10 a.m. at present and will be covered as much as possible by other local priests from our deanery. I am continuing to shield and can only celebrate Mass from the presbytery at present.
Please remember that our Saturday evening Mass at 6.30 p.m. will not be celebrated in Church and will only be available online from the presbytery via our Parish YouTube Channel.
Our Sunday morning Mass at 10 a.m. will be celebrated in Church and also online from the presbytery via our YouTube Channel.
Our Weekday Masses on Tuesday at 7.30 p.m. and on Friday at 10 a.m. are also only available on our live stream YouTube channel.

Please only come to church for Mass on Sunday morning if you feel comfortable and safe about doing so. It is most important that you keep yourself safe as we are called at this time to ‘Stay at Home’. Remember that there is no obligation to come to Mass on Sundays during these difficult times.
We are keeping our 10 a.m. Sunday Mass under review as to whether we can continue to open our church for this Mass. However, please remember that all our Masses are available online as well.
Pray for everyone in our parish family, in our local community, for our families and friends, and for people/communities in need around the world, as I will also.
Please keep safe over the days and weeks to come and continue to keep an eye out for anyone who is struggling or needs help and support as we continue our journey together through the challenges of the pandemic.
If you wish to speak with myself or Deacon Huw, please call me on 01440 704142, or Deacon Huw on 07399 163718. If you need to contact one of us, please don’t hesitate to do so.
Wishing you and your families every blessing and prayers.
Father John and Deacon Huw
SUPPORTING OUR PARISH
Your weekly offering to the church is essential to our parish and we are truly grateful for your generous giving over the years.
Over the last months the parish income has dropped by about 50%.
There are collection plates by the doors for your weekly offering to the parish when you attend Mass as there is not a collection during Mass at present.
It would help if you could set up a standing order for your regular payment. You can also make single payments through your bank.
The parish bank details are:
Account name: ST FELIX CATHOLIC CHURCH
