What’s On

Some parish groups have returned to the Parish Centre or are continuing to meet remotely. Please look out for details on our newsletter, for the Poetry Group, Luncheon Club and other parish activities.

We are hoping shortly to resume Tea/Coffee after Mass on Sunday morning. We will be asking for volunteers.

Toddlers  Tuesday’s (Term Time Only) – please contact Shelagh 07742 988204 for more details.  Booking a place is essential as numbers are restricted.

Retreats in Daily Life –  it is still possible to make a Retreat in Daily Life. Meetings with retreat companions are being offered via various online platforms such as Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp, Facetime as well as by telephone. The retreats entail praying privately each day for a period of time, plus regular meetings with a trained prayer companion. They are rooted in the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola – a series of Scripture-based, Christ-centred meditations and contemplations which help us to explore our felt experiences both during and after prayer, so that we can learn how to discern and know God’s action in our lives. For further information please visit the Manresa Link website https://www.manresalink.org.uk. If you would like to make a retreat at this time, please email manresalink@hotmail.com and specify what platform(s) you are able to use.
