THE DAY OF THE LORD
The bishops of England and Wales have written a letter to us all about the meaning and importance of SUNDAY, being part of SUNDAY MASS, and the value of EUCHARISTIC ADORATION as we restart Catholic life after Covid. Follow the link here for the full text. We will be exploring this letter more in the coming weeks.
On Friday, 19 March, we celebrated the Solemnity of Joseph, perhaps concluding the Novena of prayer you may have made, and perhaps formally beginning our keeping of this Year of St Joseph that Pope Francis has called for. In this year we renew our awareness of the eternal role of St Joseph of guardian of the Church everywhere and of each of us too.
Our Year of St Joseph page will be updated as we go along this year with suggestions and resources for devotion to St Joseph
We continue to keep our churches safe by following the safety guidelines.
The Coronavirus (COVID) infection rates within our parish area are rising. Some residents have COVID without knowing it, because they do not show or feel any symptoms. To help locate the infected residents and break the chain of infection Harrow and Ealing Councils have introduced Rapid COVID testing for people who are not showing any symptoms of COVID. You can get more details and are able to book a test here for Harrow Borough and here for Ealing Borough
