Thank you for your support of the Peter's Pence second collection last weekend. £159.71 was collected.

We congratulate our children from the Class of 2020 who celebrated their long-awaited First Holy Communion this weekend and we thank our catechists for their work in preparing them. Many thanks to all those who have helped support them, especially in prayer.

St Joseph's Nursery has some places available from September. You should contact the school for more information, tel. 0114 2692773.

Catholic newspapers
Alas, neither The Universe nor The Catholic Times survived the consequences of the pandemic and both have ceased to be published. The Catholic Herald is now published as a monthly magazine and is available by subscription from or tel. 020 7448 3607.

Attending church

You MUST NOT come to church if: You are unwell or somebody in your household has coronavirus symptoms, for example a cough or high temperature. Please follow the directions of the stewards.

Church Cleaning & Stewarding
The continuing work of our voluntary church cleaners and stewards remains the bedrock of our ability to open and use our church. Without them the church would be closed and we are immensely thankful for all that they do. If you have returned to church, have seen how things are done, and now feel ready and able to volunteer then please contact me. More hands help spread the load. Thank you.

Finally, this week's newsletter is here.

Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for us.
St Joseph, pray for us.
St Charles Borromeo, pray for us.

With my prayers,
Rev. Mark McManus
Parish Priest
