FROM FR TIM
Naturally, I was sorry that my sister and some of the family were not able to join me to celebrate my Golden Jubilee. Likewise, it was disappointing that we were not able to have get-togethers in each of the parishes. However, you made up for all that in spectacular style. I am truly grateful for the messages of goodwill and I feel very honoured that you took so much trouble to mark the occasion so generously and in so many different ways.
I hope I was able to express some of that at the end of Mass last weekend and in my Thursday message. It has been a roller-coaster week and I feel somewhat of an emotional wreck. But may I just say that my hope and prayer is that I will have the health and strength to continue to serve Bishop Eton and St Mary’s for a good while to come.
I will continue to record a Mass each weekend for the foreseeable future because, faced with the present restrictions, there is no way we can accommodate the regular Mass attendance and I am conscious that many of you may still be nervous about venturing forth, while some of you are still shielding.
At the same time, across the Pastoral Area we now have a good number of Masses each week, so I hope everyone who is able will come to Mass from time to time. May I especially encourage you to bring the children – remember you may sit together in your bubble in the one bench – and it would be a shame if we get out of the habit of coming: we are above all a Eucharistic community!
Mass times at St Mary’s for the coming week and going forward will be Tuesday (28 July) at 7:00pm, Thursday (30 July) at 12noon and Sunday (2 August) at 11:00am. But please be aware of the limitation on numbers.
Please see the websites and bulletins for all the Mass times and may the Lord continue to bless all our efforts.
