STREAMING SERVICE APPEAL

We are streaming 3 Masses each week as well as First Communion Masses, Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals if requested. We have over 400 regular subscribers and there have been over 36,000 views since we began in March 2021. The system has been developed in-house. Last year, following an appeal, we were able to update the software and to buy dedicated streaming cameras which have improved the quality and range of the output. However, we are now finding that the computer hardware needs updating. So we are appealing once again to your generosity in helping us to raise £ 2500.00 so that our transmission can continue to the highest possible standard. Please send your donation to the office marked STREAMING SERVICE. Many Thanks

BECOMING A CATHOLIC

Do you come to mass or watch it online… but are not Catholic? If you do, perhaps you have questions about what you see and hear? Maybe you are also thinking about becoming a Catholic? RCIA is designed for adults who are curious about the Catholic faith, as well as those who are considering becoming a Catholic.

If you want to find out more information please speak to Fr Jim after mass or contact the parish office by email busheyandoxhey@rcdow.org.uk
