ALL SERVICES AND MASSES MUST BE PRE-BOOKED AS FOLLOWS:
As mentioned in last week’s Newsletter because of the pandemic, there will be a booking system in place this year for all of the above Masses/Services. It is essential to pre-book. We will again be using the services of Mark, our Seminarian. However some contact details have changed. PLEASE USE ONLY THESE DETAILS.
From Wednesday 23rd March places can be booked using:
Text to 07407 040243.
Phone - 07407 040243.
The phoneline will only be available from Wednesday 23rd March and daily between the hours of: 5:30pm-7pm Monday to Friday, 12 noon - 5pm Saturday and Sunday.
Mark is continuing his studies through online lectures and assignments which is why the phone line will only be open for very limited hours. Emails and texts can be sent at any time, and Mark will respond as and when he is able with confirmation that your booking is complete.
Taking learnings from Christmas, it is really important that you provide all of the following information when making your booking:
1) Your name;
2) Which service you wish to book for (day & time)
3) at which Church – please do remember to state which Church!
4) How many people you are booking for.
Remember that you can book multiple services or Masses. All bookings are on a first come, first booked basis, and ALL the services listed above must be pre-booked. You can begin booking only from Wednesday 24th March.
The system worked incredibly well at Christmas thanks to everyone’s support, so we hope that Easter will run just as smoothly. Updates on availability will be posted on the parish website, where you can find everything you need.
Liturgy for Holy Week
The latest video from Rebecca Wilkinson of Blessed Trinity is a joint project involving Fs David & Damian, together with four schools within the Parish of the Good Samaritan; Blessed Trinity High School plus Christ the King, St Mary’s and St John the Baptist primary schools.
The purpose of the Liturgy is to help us prepare for this Easter by thinking of the important events that involved Jesus in that first Holy Week and Easter. Please click on the link below:
