When we set off on our Synod journey with the words Together on the Road, we never imagined what God had in store for us. The last few month have been unexpected and they have taught us all that the road has many twists and turn on it and, as the Synod journey continues, God is calling us to listen, often in new and exciting ways. Archbishop Malcolm has issued a video message and a revised Synod timetable has been published.
Our Synod weekend will now take place on 18, 19, and 20 June 2021. You can watch the message and find full details of the changes on the Synod 2020 website: synod2020.co.uk Please continue to pray for our Synod 2020 journey.

Update on Saint Sebastian's Church
From Monday 14th September Saint Sebastian’s Church will be open for Mass two times a week. Mass will be celebrated on Monday morning at 10:00 am, and Saturday evening at 4:30 pm. These times will be revisited in October. Space is limited to 35 people, so you must phone the office (01512283327) in order to book a place at either of these Masses.
Please note that from Monday 7th September, and for the rest of the month, Saint Oswald’s Church will not be open for private prayer. We will still be open for Masses (10:30am on Tuesday & Friday, 9:30am & 11:00am on Sunday). The streamed Masses will also be stopping during the month of September. Don’t worry though, we will restart our streamed Masses and be reopening for private prayer in October. Please remember though that you will still need to book your place to come to any of the Masses. The obligation to attend Sunday Mass has not been reinstated, so any Mass you attend fulfils the Sunday obligation.

A prayer of spiritual communion
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
I love you, my Jesus:
never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
A Prayer in times of danger and illness
God our Father,
Each person is precious to You.
You are the giver of life.
Have mercy on us and protect us at this time,
as the Coronavirus threatens health and life.
You are an ever-present Helper in time of trouble.
Watch over those who are suffering,
give strength to those who are aiding the Sick
and give courage to all in this time of anxiety.
We ask this of you in the name
of your Son Jesus Christ.
