Notice from Fr Stephen

Dear Parishioners,

The Church  and Parish Hall will remain closed until further notice in keeping with the guidelines issued from the Archdiocese. Before any building can be re-opened there are strict rules to be kept and a risk assessment has to be agreed by the area bishop.

Unfortunately, I have had to take leave of absence as from the 26th June from the parish due to serious illness in my family. Hopefully, by the end of July I will be in a position to keep you all informed concerning my family.

It is important to reaffirm that the obligation to attend Sunday Mass and Holy Days of Obligation remains suspended by the Conference of Bishops in England and Wales.

I am looking forward to opening the Church for Mass as soon as is possible, but we have been assured by the Archbishop that we are under no pressure to open until all the relevant precautions and necessary risk assessments have been met. The safety of all parishioners is paramount.

The last three months during this Coronavirus pandemic have been hard and these last  two weeks with a sudden serious illness in my family has made it even more difficult.

The parish office, however, will be open for telephone calls only as usual on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 10am – 12 midday. If in an emergency you need a Priest then please telephone St Raphael’s, Surbiton on 0208 541 4999 or Our Lady Immaculate, Tolworth on 0208 399 9550.

I have been offering a Private Mass every day and remembering you in my prayers in the Holy  Sacrifice.

May God bless you and continue to keep you all safe and well.

Fr Stephen
