MASS INTENTIONS:

Requests for Mass intentions can be e-mailed to the parish office. All Masses will be said privately by the confreres but listed on the website under ‘Mass Intentions.’ Any stipends/donations can be sent in once the parish office is open.  You can find a list of Mass Intentions on the parish website or by following this link:
 

Many of us have favourite Charities that we support and we would like to encourage you to share ideas with others in the community, particularly if the Charity collects certain things: stamps, printer cartridges, etc. There are of course local shops selling fairtrade items, such as Shared Earth on Bold Street but we want to give you just some ideas of websites that you may not yet know about, that support charities. Some do not cost you anything but give a % of your bill back to the Charity of your choice.

Note that other charities and websites are available!

With thanks to the Knights of St Columba who are part funding this initiative.

INTERNET SAFETY

Sadly, there have been a number of reports of Zoom calls being Zoombombed (an individual intrudes uninvited into a Zoom call) and distributing distressing material or comments, live streams being hacked, and people joining online groups with the intention of grooming children and young people.

CSAS have put together the attached guidance document in respect of using videoconferencing for ministry, parents may find the useful links section helpful in guiding you through the online world.

Guidance_on_safeguarding_in_the_use_of_videoconferencing_for_ministry.pdf

Sections 8 & 9 of the CSAS Creating a Safer Environment document inlcudes guidance on the use of technology, and photography and filming including live streaming church services.  https://www.csas.uk.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Creating-a-Safer-Environment-1.docx"

Any questions on either document should be sent to 

GIVING DURING LOCKDOWN:

Following requests for alternatives to offertory collections, staff at the Archdiocesan Finance Department have been working hard developing various platforms and alternative ways of giving during lockdown.
However, I am acutely aware that many families will be struggling financially during these difficult times and there is no expectation whatsoever for you to sign up to any of the options that are suggested here.
For those parishioners that can afford to do so, it would be preferable to hold onto to your donations until the end of lockdown and then make a one-off payment, (preferably by cheque) for the full amount. Parishioners are advised not make a journey to the presbytery to post envelopes with donations.  For those parishioners who do not already donate by Standing Order and would like to do so, you can find an electronic copy on our website or by following this link:
