Welcome to St Chad's

 

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

The time has come for me to take responsibility for St Ann’s parish as well as St Chad’s, which brings with it a change to the Mass schedule. My suggestion is a temporary proposal which we can review and discuss again at Christmas time.

The weekday Masses at St Chad’s will remain the same (please note there are no weekday Masses this week 20th & 22nd October):

  • 7.30pm on Tuesday

  • 9.30am on Thursday

The church will open half an hour before each Mass for private prayer. You do not need to book to attend either of these Masses.

The revised times for Sunday Masses at St Chad’s will be:

  • 7pm on Saturday

  • 9am on Sunday

A booking system is in place for these Masses and can be done by emailing or phoning St Chad’s Monday – Friday of the week you wish to attend. Please note, you will not receive a reply unless there is a problem with your booking.

For the moment there will be no Rosary before the Sunday Mass.

On a day where there is no Mass in St Chad’s, please consider coming to Mass at St Ann’s. It would be wonderful if we could all get to know each other a little better and share gifts and initiatives between both parishes. The Mass times at St Ann’s are: 10am – Monday, 10am – Tuesday, 10am – Friday, 5pm – Saturday (Vigil Mass), 11am – Sunday. Attendance at St Ann’s is on a first come first served basis and no booking is required for any of the Masses at St Ann’s.

Face coverings must be worn when you are attending Mass in either church.

There is no public Mass in either parish on Wednesdays. There will also be no morning/midday Mass on Saturday in either parish for now, but from time to time, we can have a Mass in honour of Our Lady on special occasions such as the First Saturday or one of her feast days. I will publicise these Masses when they are arranged.

Finally, thank you to everybody who has helped me get settled in over the past few months. I would be very grateful if we can all continue to work together in the same spirit of unity and charity in this new phase for the parish which begins this week.

May God bless and protect you all.

Marriage Care If you are going through difficulties in your relationship, Stockport Marriage Care offers a confidential counselling service.  You can contact us on 0800 3893801.  We are currently providing couple counselling via a secure webcam (Zoom).

Spiritual Communion  We are invited by Pope Francis to make an act of spiritual communion each day, expressing our wish and desire to receive Jesus into our hearts.  This is very pleasing to the Lord and the saints assure us that it brings great grace.  There was even an official Church teaching on this practice given at the Council of Trent.  Here is a prayer to use: 

My Jesus, I believe that You are in the Blessed Sacrament.  I love You above all things, and I long for You in my soul.  Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.  I wish my Lord to receive you, with the purity, humility and devotion with which your Most Holy Mother received you, with the spirit and fervour of the saints.  Amen.
