————————————————————————————-Sunday Mass Obligations:

With the ease of almost all the lockdown regulations, the Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales have decided to reinstate the Sunday Obligations. This means that every Catholic is expected to attend Mass in Church on Sunday. However, those who, as a result of age, poor mobility, sickness or any other tenable reasons, are unable to be physically present are exempt. Full explanation on our website. Welcome Home!

————————————————————————————-We welcome feedback regarding the size of the newsletter.

If you would like an item to be included in the newsletter, you need to supply the notice to the Parish Office by Wednesday Midday. Items are included or may be edited at the discretion of the Parish Priest. Thank you.

————————————————————————————-Holy Communion for those who are housebound.

Holy Communion at Home can be offered to any Catholic who cannot attend Church because of their own infirmity, or because they cannot leave the house due to caring for others. If you or someone you know, would like Holy Communion at home, or simply to be visited, please get in touch with one of the priests.

————————————————————————————-Synod 2023.

Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand! (Matt 11:15). Pope Francis has initiated a listening process for discussion in 2023. Holy Cross has already contributed to this. We need now to discuss the feedback the Diocese received from all the parishes. More importantly we should meet to help fulfil this listening process at ‘home’ in Holy Cross. Summaries of responses from the listening phase can be found on the website.



You are invited to our parish’s meeting on Sunday July 10, 2022, 4:30 – 6:15 pm in the parish centre. Please do consider contributing to this and put the date in your calendar now.

————————————————————————————-Tea & Coffee after Mass

You are all invited to have Tea & Coffee every Sunday after the 09.30 am Mass and every Thursday after the 10 am Mass in the Hall.

————————————————————————————-A Thank you note from Little Sisters of the Poor.

We would like to thank you all for your generous donation, we are most grateful to you for your kindness. Be assured that all your intentions will be remembered in our daily prayers. Thank you.

————————————————————————————-Missio Red Box collections

Please pick up your new envelope from the Church Porch and empty your box. Return the envelope to the Sacristy or post to the Church letterbox by the weekend of 16th/17th July. As ever your support is appreciated and so much needed.

Thank you kindly – Alex F.
