Welcome to our parish website.
Dear parishioners and visitors to our website,
Many of your good selves have been self-isolating for some time now and others are being shielded. There are those with memories of war-time rations, blackouts and air raids but nothing quite to compare with current circumstances. To those I have spoken to, I have been struck by your fortitude and your concern for others welfare; our Christian hope, faith and charity is shining forth in these uncertain times. Be assured of my on-going prayers during this national emergency, above all do not be afraid. We know so well Our Lord’s gentle words of encouragement: ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled
,’ John 14:1 and further on in His last supper discourse: ‘Be brave I have overcome the world,’ John 16:33. Our Lady of Perpetual Help is standing beside us asking us to heed her Son: ‘Do what ever He tells you,’ John 2:5. Owing to the serious situation there is no obligation to attend Mass on Sunday, Holy Days or Eastertide though making a spiritual communion at home will fill you with God’s love. Why not follow Mass on the internet where live streaming is available, one such site is http://www.wordonfire.org (Mass each day). Please do not hesitate to call me for a chat or if you are living in Barton-under-Needwood to request any provisions; there are parishioners and volunteers (Barton Volunteer Network and Yoxall food bank) willing to deliver necessary supplies. My number: 01283 713104
May God bless you all,
Fr Eamonn Corduff – Parish Priest
