Welcome to St Chad's

 

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
 
Due to recently announced restrictions, in place to keep us all safe from the Coronavirus, St Chad's is now closed to the public until further notice.
 
The Bishops of England and Wales want everyone to understand that in these emergency circumstances, and for as long as the last, the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days is removed.
 
I will celebrate Mass every day on my own during this time, missing your presence, but keeping you in my prayers.  Knowing that the Mass is being celebrated and making an act of Spiritual Communion is how we share in the Sacrifice of Christ in these days.  Through these we will sanctify the Sunday and indeed every day.  Live streaming of our weekend Masses is available on the Church Services website.
 
It is important during these challenging times that we care for one another, especially those who are elderly and vulnerable.  Whilst there are many practical things we can do, simply keeping in touch with people can bring much comfort in these difficult times.
 
I will keep you all updated as and when I am able.
 
May God bless and protect you and your families at this time,
 
Fr Sean.

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.
