The weekly children’s liturgy takes place online via the Zoom platform
The sessions take place at 9:30am – 9:50am on Sundays, so you are then free to join in with the 10am livestreamed Mass afterwards.
To make the sessions as secure as possible, you will need to pre-register here
You will receive an email with individual joining link (please don’t share this with anyone) and a few safeguarding reminders.
PLEASE NOTE: there will be Children’s Liturgy on Palm Sunday, 28th March, and after that there will be a short break for Easter, back on 25th April.
Don’t forget the two special Family Events at Easter
Maundy Thursday Family Liturgy on Zoom – 4pm All are welcome to join us for a short family service on the theme of the washing of the feet on Zoom. The liturgy will comprise the reading of the Gospel, a short reflection from Fr Mark, washing of each other’s feet in our homes and concluding with a prayer and blessing. You are invited to have a bowl of water and towel ready!
Good Friday Way of the Cross on Zoom – 10am All are very welcome to join us as a number of families from the parish take us through the Gospel narrative of Jesus’ Passion and Death. Fr Mark will then lead a short reflection, which will be followed by Veneration of the Cross in our own homes. If you have a crucifix or picture of the crucifixion at home, please have it to hand.
