Act of 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 into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself completely to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
The main mitigation against serious health issues arising from COVID infection is to be fully vaccinated; this means two doses plus a booster for anyone aged 16 or over. The vaccine programme in England and Wales has had a major impact in reducing death and serious illness from infection with COVID-19. The Catholic Church in England and Wales supports the vaccination programme and encourages people to be vaccinated. As COVID-19 restrictions have eased, our parish community is glad to welcome the changes with caution. Our primary concern is to ensure that our church continues to be a place where people feel safe to gather for worship.
When you visit the church:
- Sanitise your hands at the entrance and exit.
- Holy Communion will continue to be under one kind.
Please avoid attending church if you, or someone in your household, has symptoms of COVID. NHS COVID-19 guidance can be found here.
