Directly after Mass finishes, click the heading above, which will open a zoom meeting. If you have not ever used zoom before, then it will invite you to install a piece of software for this purpose (a quick and easy install). You will then be able to see and hear each other. Chris Barrell is organising the meeting and can set you up on a virtual coffee table with 4 or 5 other people so that everyone can have a social time. Thus those able to come to church for Mass may also be with those who for whatever reason are either attending a weekday Mass or the on line streamed Mass.
Our parish continues to develop our relationships with our friends in Angal, Mannar and Monze and it supports the work of Aid to the Church in Need.
This past year has been difficult for everyone, but for our friends overseas their challenges have been multiplied. Many people and parishes have had problems maintaining an income and necessary precautions have increased their costs. We have tried to continue to provide funds over recent months, but it has been very challenging to meet the needs of some of our "Projects".
We are aware that some in this Country have lost work and income, but if you are able please consider making a donation to support our "Parish Projects" this Christmas.
There are envelopes at the back of church. If you are not currently visiting the church, please get in touch with Chris Barrell by ringing 01242 513992 or sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and he will get an envelope to you. Envelopes can be be posted through the presbytery letterbox or return to Chris at 10 Painswick Road. If you pay income tax please remember to complete the Gift Aid declation on the back of the envelope so we can recover the tax.
Thank you very much for your support. We wish you a blessed Christmas and look forward to seeing more of each other in 2021. Take care and stay safe.
