Parish Diary

Specific Events

There will be no Masses at St Walstan’s from Sunday April 18th to Saturday April 24th inclusive.  In other words, the last Mass will be on Saturday April 17th at 6pm, and the first Mass will be on Sunday April 25th at 10.30am.  Of course, other churches, including the cathedral, will be open during this time if you wish to be able to attend Mass in person during this time; but remember that the obligation to attend has been waived for the duration of the pandemic so it is not a sin to miss Mass at the moment.

First Holy Communion 2022: We are welcoming applications from those who wish their child to prepare for Reconciliation and First Ho.ly Communion in 2022. If your child will be 8 years old or over on 31 August 2021 (Year 3 or above), please contact Christine Conrad via email – c.conrad1@outlook.com – as soon as possible. It is anticipated that the programme will start in January 2022, but due to the continuing pandemic, the start date may be delayed.

Votive Candles: If you would like me to light a candle and pray for someone or some situation, please let me know, by phone or email, and I will be happy to do so.  Fr David.

GIFT AID/STANDING ORDERS: Did you know, if you pay tax, you can increase the value of the money you donate to our church by £1 for every £4 you give at no extra cost to yourself. You just need to complete a very simple form. All parishioners are invited to contribute their weekly offering via envelopes. You are also welcome to contribute your weekly offering via Standing Order so that you can automatically donate even when you are away. If you pay Income Tax and sign a Gift Aid Form, the Parish is able to recover the tax that you have paid on your weekly offertory contributions. If you are able to do this, please contact Christine Conrad – my emailaddress is c.conrad1@outlook.com

Adult Confirmation: If there are any baptised adults who have not been confirmed and would like to be prepared for that sacrament, please contact Fr David for further details.
