Joining  us for Mass at Our Lady and All Saints

The Bishops have stated that the obligation to attend Mass on Sunday and on Holy Days is suspended.

For the time being those who are  vulnerable in any way are strongly encouraged to stay at home and follow Mass using our Live Stream.

We ask you to please stay at home if you have flu like symptoms!

The Church will be opened 15 minutes before Mass begins by our Stewards.

The capacity of our church is 41 individual seats. There are a limited number of seats that can hold families or those from the same household.

Face Covering
Please wear a mask or a face covering. This must be worn throughout Mass, until you leave Church (except of course when receiving Holy Communion)

Stewards

Stewards will direct people to their seats.

Holy Communion

Holy Communion will be distributed at the end of Mass. A Steward will direct you. Please wait for an instruction from the Stewards before leaving your seat. After receiving Communion please leave Church straight away following the one way system. It is not be possible to return to your seat after Communion, please therefore keep your belongings to a minimum and ensure you take everything with you. Any item left will be disposed off.

Volunteers needed

We are dependent on volunteers to be stewards for our Masses. Please consider if you can help as a steward to welcome people, help them to have a safe visit,  assist with managing procession for Holy Communion and clean the Church after each Mass. You can help if you are over 18 and you are not suffering from any flu-like symptoms. If you are over 70 you can help, just be aware of potential risk to your own health and anyone you live with.

Please contact the parish office on olas.stourbridge@rcaob.org.uk for more information.

Fr Philip

Follow the daily Readings at Mass. Universalis or Alive Publsihing

Make an Act of Spiritual Communion –  This can be done whilst you watch a live stream of Mass by saying the following prayer:

“My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.”
