September 2020

It has been bought to my attention that information in regards to when St. Edmund’s is now open is not clear on this website.  So I shall clarify the times here:

  • 11 AM Every Sunday – Mass
  • 12:15 PM Every Wednesday – Mass/Service of the Word

St. Edmund’s is no longer open for private prayer on Mondays and Thursdays.  Due to Covid-19, we are not at present able to open for the community day on Thursdays mornings.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the ordinations which would usually have taken place at Petertide have been moved to the season around Michaelmas (29th September).  Please do pray for all those who are preparing for ordination to the Diaconate and Priesthood, details of The Society ordinations can be found here:  https://www.sswsh.com/fullposts.php?id=296

It is really important that we all pray for our Deacons, Priests and Bishops, that God will sustain them in their ministry, that he will guide those preparing for ordination and that there will be an increase in vocations to the Deaconate and Priesthood. To help us pray for our clergy we have produced this resource with The Society, which can be downloaded here: https://www.churchunion.co.uk/uploads/Ordination_Resource_FINAL.pdf
