HeartStone: the parish of Sacred Heart & St John Stone, Ainsdale
Living the Love of Christ: everyone welcome, everyone matters, everyone involved.
Coronavirus update 16 July 2021:
OPENING UP TO THE LITURGY …
we have resumed Saturday evening at 6.30pm Holy Communion outside SH
the housebound can request communion at their doorstep
Liturgy in SJS church Saturday 5.30pm mass in church
Sunday 10.30am mass in church (and via zoom)
and each Wednesday SJS is open for personal prayer 11.00 to 12.00
followed by Wednesday mass at 12.00 noon
Not everybody will be ready to return to church Mass-going, and there is still no obligation, so we’ll go steadily.
Phoning each week to request a place for the Saturday 5.30 and Sunday 10.30 is essential: 01704 577722
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Jesus appointed us as stewards over human goods and Divine graces, to use, not to abuse them. Help us to go out into the world, refreshed by your Spirit, to do what you have called us to do in Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
Staying Safe – Covid Roadmap Step 4
On 19 July social distancing and contact limits end. Our Archdiocese decrees face coverings must continue to be worn in services, so please continue wearing face masks in church and the parish centre. Contact-tracing rules remain in place, so still book places for Sunday Masses and give a contact number, and respect others’ need for social distancing.
Parishioners wearing a mask during Mass may sing if they wish (hymn books not available yet), but if you are not wearing a mask you must not sing. The choir may be able to sing together in church from September🙏. Communion to your outstretched hand will continue after the Dismissal.
Please graciously continue observing the stewards’ instructions, which are for everyone’s safety. Your co-operation has been wonderful throughout the fast-changing and sometimes confusing regulations, thank you!
In faith and safekeeping, your Parish Vision Team: Steve Bousfield, Andrew Curtis, Monica Gannon, Chris Hawkhead, Anne Pickup, Valerie Stroud.
