Proposed experiment during October.

Because the church is not large enough to accommodate everyone coming to Sunday Mass, the plan is that the Sunday morning timetable will be changed from the three normally scheduled Masses to:





Please consider ‘trying’ one of these Masses in the hope that everyone looking for Mass is able to find it. N.B. Review of experiment at end of October, and then see what should happen.

Churches Together in Carshalton Zoom talk, Tuesday 6th October, 7.30pm. Register and/or details,


Just for now, Holy Cross is reopening for Mass, Confirmation and RCIA.

and all the other things that have not happened as they should are in hand. These include First Communions, UCM, choirs (suspended by the Government), Prayer groups…and much more. A little prayer will help for the success in celebrating Mass publicly, and then we can move on from there.
