He Is Risen!

In the weeks following Easter, and up to Pentecost, we are in the joyful season of Eastertide. Following on from our prayer time though Lent, we will continue with Morning Prayer of the Church on Friday mornings at 09:10. This is normally followed by our Friday morning Mass at 09:30 although sometimes that changes - school Mass, funerals etc. Whenever practicable we will say the morning prayer even if there is not a Mass directly after.

The photos (see left) are a selection from those taken on Easter Sunday and feature the Paschal Candle - a powerful symbol of the Light of Christ living in our community. Other images show the cross used in the Easter stations for families on Good Friday.).

It is important that on admission to hospital, a patient (or his/her carers) inform the admission staff that they are Catholic. The hospital will not ask for this information, it is up to the patient to make it known and to make sure that a note is made. As of September 2018, Gloucester NHS no longer employ a catholic chaplain. In an emergency, please ask the nursing staff to contact the Chaplaincy Office at the hospital (or ring 03004 222222 and ask for the Catholic Chaplain)

Weekly Mass Times are easy to find on our newsletter.
