Father Robert writes: the Archbishops and Bishops of the Church of England have instructed that all places of worship must now be completely closed. This is now the case at St Mary's, but our life of Christian prayer and fellowship continues through other means. The people of our congregation and parish continue to be prayed for, name by name and street by street. The daily Office and daily Mass also continue. May the Divine Compassion aid, sustain and protect us all.  If I can help you, or pray for you or with you, do please be in touch:

Resurrexi et adhuc tecum sum, alleluia, it says below the statue of the Risen Christ on our high altar canopy: 'I have risen and I am still with you, alleluia' - the opening words of the Entrance Antiphon on Easter Sunday.  Yes, He is risen indeed, alleluia.

IMPORTANT: No Public Services

In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have decided that public worship is suspended until further notice.

A private daily Mass will continue to be offered for our parish, congregation, and for all who are afflicted or affected by the coronavirus situation.

New Year's Day Recital

Many thanks to David Gibbs, our recitalist, for starting off our New Year with such a splendid programme.  The audience - well over a hundred of them - enjoyed Bach, Franck, Elgar, and an organ version of Peter and the Wolf, wonderfully narrated by Guy Matthews.
