A PRAYER FOR EVERYONE AT THIS DIFFICULT TIME
God of healing and of hope , in Jesus you meet us in our places of pain and fear.
Look with mercy on those who have contracted the new virus, on any who are vulnerable, and on all who feel in danger.
Through this time of global concern, by your Holy Spirit bring out that which is best in us, not what is worst.
Make us more aware of our interdependence on each other, and of the strength that comes from being one body in you.
Through Christ our wounded healer.
(Dr. Sam Wells of St. Martin in the Field)
Please join us online for live Mass on Sunday at 10am.

Journeying forward together
In response to Pope Francis' call for the worldwide church to become involved in the 2023 Synod, we have prepared a parish survey enabling us to share our thoughts about our faith and our parish. We are also asked to share our hopes and dreams for the parish and the church. The aim of the survey is to promote renewal on a personal, parish and ultimately on a whole Church level, becoming more missionary and outward looking in our approach.
You can fill in the questionnaire electronically by clicking here or by scanning the QR code below .
Paper copies are also available on tables in the narthex. Boxes will be provided in the Narthex to return paper copies. We urge as many people as possible to complete the survey, whether or not you attend Mass regularly. Responses are welcomed from any members of your family or friends, whatever their views may be. Please return surveys before the end of February, as the results need to be collated and written into a report for the Archdiocese by 8th April. The responses to the questions about our parish will form the basis of a Parish plan as we journey forward together post pandemic.
