This Week’s Parish Newsletter

St Simon Stock Catholic Church Church News

Adam here, I hope that you are all keeping warm as the cold weather draws in.

This week’s website updates include quite a few notices in addition to the weekly newsletter, and Mass times.

Fr. Hans is going on holiday to India and will return on 22nd December. Whilst he is away, we will be in the safe hands of Fr. Biju Alex whom we welcome at Mass this week. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament continues each Wednesday evening at 6 p.m for half an hour before the 6.30 p.m. Mass.

Also, please the statement from the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales concerning the Sunday Obligation, from which extracts were read last Sunday by Fr. Hans.

Please also read the notices for Admissions to reception at St. Simon Of England School 2022.

The season of Advent begins this week. Please notices concerning Advent including appeals, and Crib Collections. We would like volunteers to help build our Christmas Crib. Contact the church, Mark Pickett or Thereza Baker if you would be interested helping with this.

Have a great week and stay safe and warm.
