Autumn Schedule for Sacred Heart & St Margaret Mary Catholic Mission Community
Planted in love and built on love (St Paul)
It has been a wonderful summer at Sacred Heart thanks to the help of so many people in our parish community- especially our stewards who have worked hard to ensure we have been able to gather together safely and to Gilroy and others who bring our Sunday Mass into homes.
Our Sunday Pop-up-Church on the playground (with thanks to Sacred Heart School) livestreamed on Facebook and YouTube has meant that we could worship together with a physical and virtual congregation!
During the Summer months we were able to begin to celebrate the Sacraments again- 14 children have been baptised, 3 couples have celebrated their marriages and our First Holy Communion children have been celebrating receiving the Eucharist at the Parish masses.
Building work on our buildings has continued with outside painting, improvements to the toilets in the Guild Hall and the roof repaired on the oldest part of the clubroom. A new lighting system for the Hall is being prepared and our new fixed camera to continue livestreaming has been ordered.
We must not forget the hidden ministry that has carried on during the lockdown with phone calls being made to our more elderly and vulnerable parishioners, DVD’s of our Sunday Mass sent out and our online presence through our Facebook and Instagram pages.
So much to be thankful for and many blessings being poured out on our Parish.
As Autumn weather turns colder we will have the following Schedule for celebrating Mass beginning this weekend 10th/11th October:
