Coronavirus Bulletin

Parish Update 21st March 2020

This is clearly a difficult time for our country but we hope that our Parish community can still function in some way during the weeks and months ahead, albeit in a radically different way than we are used to.

We are trying hard to develop our communications to ensure that parishioners can keep up-to-date with news and developments.

The first way you can do this is by visiting the Parish website supplied by the Diocese available here > https://parish.rcdow.org.uk/edgware/

The second way is by signing to the Parish email distribution list available here > https://mailchi.mp/7e1c889cd96a/discipleship. As you have received this email, you are already taking this step but if you have family and friends in the Parish, please encourage them to also do so also. The link is also available on our website.

Thirdly, we are developing a separate microsite during this time. This will function to provide specific services we want to develop including spiritual conferences live-streamed from our parish, forms to fill-in if you need help, contacts for various services available to parishioners and a forum for posting prayer requests. This has just been created today so there is not much content but you can check back for developments – see here > https://sites.google.com/view/stanthonysparish-coronavirus/home

Sunday Mass

As you are most likely already aware, there is no public Sunday Mass being celebrated at St Anthony’s this Sunday. To be clear, this means that the obligation to attend Sunday Mass has been removed (see here for more https://rcdow.org.uk/news/advice-regarding-coronavirus/). The Diocesan website has details on how you can participate in Mass from your home (see here). We are currently attempting to try and ‘live-stream’ Mass from our Parish, so you can watch Mass taking place at our Parish Church rather than another Church, at your home. Please be patient whilst we get this facility up and running.

Parish Rosary

Fr Robert will be praying the Rosary every day at 2030 during this period for our Parish. Please consider joining in this gesture from your home so we can be united in prayer during this time. We will attempt to live-stream this in due course.

St Anthony’s Men’s Group

The Men’s group was due to meet on the 30th March. Clearly, this event can no longer take place. However, we are looking at options to continue this meeting via video link. Due to the extraordinary circumstances, this will now be open to all members of the Parish. Details to follow on our Microsite which is available > Here.

Behold2020

Celebrations for this event have also been cancelled. However, it is now perhaps more than ever, important to consider taking part in the prayers of re-dedication for England on the 29th March. Please see the Behold 2020 website for more details which is available > Here

Volunteers

We are not sure at this time how we can help members of our community but if you would be interesting in putting your name down to offer whatever service you could provide by for example cooking, distributing supplies, visiting people, etc. Please get in touch by filling in the form which is available > Here. We will then provide your details to the relevant organisations in our parish.

Help

Alternatively, if you need help which could include needing food, a lift somewhere, help looking after children or elderly relatives, or, simply someone to speak to during this time, email stanthonysdiscipleship@gmail.com and we will provide your details to the relevant organisations in our parish.

Other Parish Groups

If you lead a Parish group and would be interested in supporting the wider Parish during this time we can help with coordination and publicity. Please get in touch by emailing stanthonysdiscipleship@gmail.com

Further Communications

We will attempt to send an email update at least once every two weeks but perhaps more. If you do not want to receive them you can click ‘unsubscribe’ at the bottom of this email.

Pastoral Letter, Fourth Sunday in Lent 2020

An exert from the letter from Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster is below. The full letter is available > here

Dear Guardian Angel, go for me to the church, there kneel down at Mass for me. At the Offertory, take me to God, and offer him my service: What I am, what I have, offer as my gift. At the Consecration, with your seraphic strength, adore my Saviour truly present, praying for those who have loved me, for those who have offended me, and for those now deceased, that the blood of Jesus may purify them all. During Holy Communion, bring to me the Body and Blood of Jesus uniting him with me in spirit, so that my heart may become his dwelling place. Plead with him, that through his sacrifice all people throughout the world may be saved. When the Mass ends, bring home to me and to every home, the Lord’s blessing. Amen.We are still surrounded by the angels and by the saints who are glorifying God and protecting and assisting mankind. Why should we not make them our particular friends and allies in situations where we are touching limits that we cannot overcome? St Anthony’s Discipleship Team
