PUBLIC ACTS OF WORSHIP IN CORPUS CHRISTI CHURCH RESUME OF 19th SEPTEMBER 2020

The obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy days of obligation does not apply.

    

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

It is a cause of great joy for very many people that this weekend both parish communities have the opportunity to return to public worship at Corpus Christi.  For some time, we have longed to join in the celebration of the mass and other sacraments with family, friends and neighbours. Members of both parish communities, parish office staff, along with the clergy have been working hard to ensure that everything has been put in place to ensure that all of us feel as safe as we possibly can when we return to our parish church. Every parish and every church in the diocese are different so it is important that we observe the advice and guidelines that are given at Corpus Christi. I appreciate that many people may still feel anxious or concerned about participating in large gatherings of people. You may prefer to wait a few weeks before joining us for Sunday Mass and, in the meantime, continue to avail of our parish live streaming of the Mass via https://www.pscp.tv/ccolsp  Alternatively, you may wish to participate in a weekday mass on Wednesday when the number of people attending is fewer. If you feel unwell, please remain at home for your own safety and the well-being of others.

If you’d like to volunteer as a steward at either Church or to help in any other way, please speak to Fr Wilfred or
contact the parish office via email or telephone on Monday, Wednesday and Friday during office hours

  

It is ESSENTIAL at this stage to book a place for Mass, Thursday 7.00 pm, Saturday Vigil Mass at 6.00 pm and Sunday Mass at 10.00 am by booking via https://massbooking.uk. Please go to the website and register your details and sign up. Once you have signed up, you can start a booking by first selecting the Church at which you want to attend Mass. (You can also save your favourite Churches to speed things up). You can then book one or more places at Mass. Please do not book any more than you need. Bookings for our church close 5 hours 00 minutes before the start of Mass. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. This would seem to be the fairest way of doing this with such restricted numbers. If the church is not full, there will be places available at the Mass on a first come, first served basis.

CHURCH OPEN FOR PUBLIC MASS Guidelines in Advance
Points for everyone’s safety from the National Guidelines and diocesan guidelines:
1. There is no obligation to attend Mass at present. The Diocese strongly advises those
over 70 and in a high risk category to think very carefully about attending Mass at the
moment. Following the change in Government guidelines, it is now compulsory to
wear a mask in the Church.
2. Our space is limited, Maximum Occupancy is 145,
3. In Corpus Christi there are 139 spaces, (plus 3 spaces for Stewards, plus 3 spaces for
the Clergy ) either for 39 individuals or 16 families and ’bubbles’ (96 people maximum).
4. It is ESSENTIAL at this stage to book a place for Mass,
Thursday, 7 pm  Saturday Vigil Mass at 6.00 pm and Sunday Mass at 10.00 am by
booking via https://massbooking.uk. Please go to the website and register your details
and sign up. Once you have signed up, you can start a booking by first selecting the
Church at which you want to attend Mass. (You can also save your favourite Churches
to speed things up). You can then book one or more places at Mass. Please do not
book any more than you need. If you are booking for a family of up to 5/6 people,
please only book ONE pew & you will be asked to say how many people are in the
bench. Bookings for our church close 5 hours 00 minutes before the start of Mass.
Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. This would seem to be the
fairest way of doing this with such restricted numbers. If the church is not full, there will
be places available at the Mass on a first come, first served basis. If you do not have
access to the internet, you can ring the parish secretary who is now back in the office
on 0115 921 2964 on Monday, Wednesday & Friday between 9.30 am and 2.30 pm to
book a place for Mass.

The new times of the Mass at Corpus Christi Thursday at 7.00 pm , Saturdays Vigil Mass at 6.00 pm and Sundays Mass at 10.00 am.

God Bless…

Pope Francis’ Prayer to Mary during the corona-virus pandemic:

O Mary, you always shine on our path as a sign of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm. You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need, and we are sure you will provide so that, as in Cana of Galilee, we may return to joy and to feasting after this time of trial. Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who has taken upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows to lead us, through the cross, to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.

Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not ignore the prayers of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin. 

“Tonight before falling asleep think about when we will return to the street. When we hug again, when all the shopping together will seem like a party. Let’s think about when the coffees will return to the bar, the small talk, the photos close to each other. We think about when it will be all a memory but normalcy will seem an unexpected and beautiful gift. We will love everything that has so far seemed futile to us. Every second will be precious. Swims at the sea, the sun until late, sunsets, toasts, laughter. We will go back to laughing together. Strength and courage. See you soon!” Pope Francis

An Act of Spiritual Communion

It has long been a Catholic understanding that when circumstances prevent one from receiving Holy Communion, it is possible to make an Act of Spiritual Communion, which is a source of grace. Spiritual Communion is an ardent desire to receive Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament and lovingly embrace him at a time or in circumstances when one cannot receive Him in sacramental Communion. The most common reason for making an Act of Spiritual Communion is when a person cannot attend Mass. Acts of Spiritual Communion increase our desire to receive sacramental Communion and help us avoid the sins that would make us unable to receive Holy Communion worthily.

Spiritual Communion Prayer

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things and I desire to receive you in my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, Come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there And unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen
