Eveline Osborne RIP Failing health
necessitated Eveline moving to a care home in
the last couple of months. There she suffered
a fall requiring surgery, and in hospital she sadly
contracted Covid. Although she has not been able to
attend church regularly in the last couple of years, she
received Holy Communion at home, and until her
hospitalisation, the weekly news. Our condolences go to
Mary and Jane her daughters and their families. A lovely
lady, she will be missed. May she rest in peace.
Neil Trood RIP His funeral will take place on
Tuesday 23rd February, and can be attended by
his family only, due to Covid restrictions. The
Requiem will be streamed live at 11.00 through the
church’s FB page.
Ash Wednesday is this Wednesday and there
will be an open Sung Mass at
7.30pm. Arrangements are in hand for the
ashing which has to be different because of Covid. If you
haven't please return your palm crosses today, or else
push them through the letter box on the choir link.
Stations of the Cross This traditional Lent
observance has to be in an untraditional way
because of Covid. If held in church (which
would be closed) people would not be allowed to process
from station to station. Because of this, Stations will be
via Zoom on Fridays at 6.00pm, so that there can be a
sense of us being together as pilgrims on the way of the
cross. The joining details (for every week) are:
Lent Group Again, this will have to be Zoom;
details have been circulated in the weekly
Lockdown Helpline If you’re finding lockdown
tough, then Premier Life Line is the National
Christian helpline. It is open 9 am to midnight
on 0300 111 0101 and offers a listening ear,
someone to talk to plus emotional and spiritual support.
You may find it helpful while we are all in Lockdown.
Keep safe.
Jigsaw Puzzles Please feel to borrow any
jigsaws from the back of church. If you can have
some you could donate to the 'library', that'd be
very helpful. Jigsaws may be donated or returned to the
pew against the back wall.
