Sacramental Programme – Good Shepherd Parish
Dear fellow parishioners.
As you are aware, we are still under restrictions by the Government regarding Church Services. Masses have been opened to the parishioners, but with limited numbers allowed in church. Other services and celebrations are still not back to normal and are subject to tight controls. It is therefore not possible to suggest when we might be able to complete last year’s Sacramental Programme.
Please keep you eyes on the newsletters for any updates, but it is unlikely that anything will happen before the end of this year.
As soon as the imposed restrictions are relaxed we will be in contact to let you know how the Sacramental Programme is going to restart.
In these times, it is essential that we keep our faith and stay united through prayer, so let us each pray for each other in these times of need and uncertainty.
Please keep an eye on the Parish website news letter page (see link below) for updates, in particular the note on the Coronavirus from Fr. Peter.
The church is not a building, we are it’s hands and it’s feet (St. Teresa of Avila) and as long as we remain faithful to the church, it will continue to be.
In this time it is essential that we continue to give time to God. There are many resources available on line or through apps, or simply by reading the readings of the day which can be found here:
If you are not ready to start coming back to church yet, in as far as numbers allow, you can continue to join us for Mass on the church webcam via the menu on this website. Each week in the newsletter you will find a link to the prayers and readings of the Sunday Mass with a thought for the day, both for adults and younger readers.
Also remember the videos that are on the sacraments pages of the Salford Diocese website which are very good and worth watching twice – see link below:
I wish you well in these unchartered waters and hope that we can meet in the not too distant future to complete our journey.
God be with you all and keep the faith.
