12 noon Mass and remain open for personal prayer and reflection until 1.00pm. Apart from these times
the church will be closed. 

PLEASE NOTE THE UPDATED GUIDELINES

From next Sunday, there will be no need to book to attend the 10am Mass on a Sunday morning. All the ropes that have blocked access to every second bench will be removed from after Mass on Saturday 4th September. I would still ask that families try to keep to one bench and not join others already in a bench, at least for the immediate future.

Face coverings in church are still encouraged even if they are not required by law; however, some people are exempt for medical or other reasons.  Social distancing is also still requested (1 metre apart from others not in your family).

We still need to be careful!

WORDS FOR THIS SUNDAY'S HYMNS

Entrance
I the Lord of sea and sky,
I have heard my people cry.
All who dwell in dark and sin
my hand will save.
I who made the stars of night,
I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall I send?

Here I am Lord. Is it I Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go Lord, if you lead me.
I will hold your people in my heart.

I the Lord of snow and rain,
I have borne my peoples pain.
I have wept for love of them.
They turn away.
I will break their hearts of stone,
give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak my word to them.
Whom shall I send?

I the Lord of wind and flame,
I will tend the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them.
My hand will save.
Finest bread I will provide
till their hearts be satisfied.
I will give my life to them.
Whom shall I send?

Kyrie - Israeli
Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy on us all.

Lord have mercy on us all.

to the Lord.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia

Offertory
In bread we bring you Lord,
our bodies' labour.
In wine we offer you our spirits' grief.
We do not ask you Lord,
who is my neighbour,
but stand united now, one in belief.
O we have gladly heard
your Word, your holy Word,
and now in answer Lord,
our gifts we bring.
Our selfish hearts make true,
our failing faith renew,
our lives belong to you, our Lord and King.

The bread we offer you
is blessed and broken,
and it becomes for us our spirits' food.
Over the cup we bring
your Word is spoken;
make it your gift to us,
your healing blood.
Take all that daily toil
plants in our hearts' poor soil,
take all we start and spoil,
each hopeful dream,
the chances we have missed,
the graces we resist,
Lord in thy Eucharist, take and redeem.

Sanctus - Israeli
Holy holy, holy holy,
Lord of power, Lord of might.
Heaven and earth are filled with glory.
Sing hosanna evermore.

Blest and holy, blest and holy,
He who comes from God on high.
Raise your voices, sing His glory,
praise His name for evermore.

Agnus Dei  (Repeat each line after leader)
Lamb of God 
You take our sins
Lamb of God have mercy on us
Grant us all your peace

Communion 1
Be still for the presence of the Lord,
the Holy One is here.
Come bow before Him now, with reverence and fear.
In Him no sin is found, we stand on holy ground.
Be still for the presence of the Lord,
the Holy One, is here.

Be still for the glory of the Lord,
is shining all around;
He burns with holy fire, with splendour He is crowned.
How awesome is the sight, our radiant King of light!
Be still for the glory of the Lord,
is shining all around.

Be still for the power of the Lord,
is moving in this place;
He comes to cleanse and heal, to minister His grace.
No work to hard for Him, in faith receive from Him.
Be still for the power of the Lord,
is moving in this place.

Communion 2
Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there is hatred,
let me bring your love.
Where there is injury,
your pardon, Lord,
and where there's doubt,
true faith in you

Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there's despair in life,
let me bring hope.
Where there is darkness,
only light,
and where there's sadness,
ever joy.

O Master grant that I may never seek
so much to be consoled
as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love
with all my soul.

Make me a channel of your peace.
It is in pardoning that
we are pardoned,
in giving of ourselves
that we receive,
and in dying that
we're born to eternal life

Recessional
Lord of all hopefulness,
Lord of all joy,
whose trust ever childlike,
no cares could destroy.
Be there at our waking
and give us we pray,
your bliss in our hearts, Lord,
at the break of the day.

Lord of all eagerness,
Lord of all faith,
whose strong hands were skilled
at the plane and the lathe.
Be there at our labours,
and give us we pray,
your strength in our hearts Lord
at the noon of the day.

Lord of all kindliness,
Lord of all grace,
your hands swift to welcome,
your arms to embrace.
Be there at our homing
and give us we pray,
your love in our hearts Lord
at the eve of the day.

Lord of all gentleness,
Lord of all calm,
whose voice is contentment,
whose presence is balm.
Be there at our sleeping
and give us we pray,
your peace in our hearts Lord,
at the end of the day.

The Obligation to attend Mass on Sunday is still suspended until further notice.

CARITAS CORNERSTONE’S BIG SLEEP OUT 2021
To experience just a fraction of what it is like to sleep rough and to help those who live this reality every day, Caritas Cornerstone is inviting people to “boycott their bed” for one night this September.
The Big Sleep Out is returning this autumn with a special hybrid event, asking people to raise funds to support rough sleepers by sleeping outdoors overnight at Xaverian College, Manchester, from 7pm on Friday 17 September, or by “boycotting their bed” from their own home.
How to get involved:

THE 107TH WORLD DAY OF MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES 2021
The 107th World Day of Migrants and Refugees 2021 is celebrated on 26 September - the last Sunday of the month. The Holy Father has chosen the theme 'Towards an ever wider "we"'.
The Church has been celebrating the World Day of Migrants and Refugees (WDMR) since 1914. It’s always an occasion to express concern for different vulnerable people on the move; to pray for them as they face many challenges; and to increase awareness about the opportunities that migration offers.

HOPE IN THE FUTURE - STAGE 4 LAUNCH
Parishes have been invited to launch Stage 4 of our Hope in the Future journey, focussing on ‘Proclaiming the Good News’, on Sunday 3 October 2021. Unlike previous years, where there has been a diocesan celebration at the cathedral, each parish is invited to mark the start of this stage with a Holy Hour at 3:00pm (or a time to suit the parish). Because I have baptisms already booked in that afternoon, we will have to hold the Holy Hour from 3.45pm.- 4.45pm.

THE ’CATCH-UP GROUP FOR FIRST COMMUNION:
The next meeting of this group will be on 2nd October at 10am. I am then hoping to celebrate the First Communions for this group on 31st October at the main 10.00am Parish Mass. I am hoping that, by then, we will have reverted to using every bench in the church.

THE NEXT SACRAMENTAL PROGRAMME FOR FIRST COMMUNION:
1st meeting for Holy Rosary children Saturday October 16th at 10am at  St. Patrick’s Church. 1st meeting of the St. Patrick’s side of the Parish October 23rd. at 10am at St. Patrick’s Church.

THE SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION
The Sacrament of Confirmation will take place at St. Patrick’s Church on 9th October, 11:30am for those who have attended the sessions at St. Edward’s, Lees. All preparatory meetings of our group have now been completed.

THIS WEEK’S FEASTS OR SPECIAL DAYS:
Monday 20th September  – Ss. Andrew Kim Taegon, Paul Chong Hasang and companions – Andrew Kim Taegon (21 August 1821 – 16 September 1846), also referred to as Andrew Kim in English, was the first Korean-born Catholic priest and is the patron saint of Korean clergy. Kim was canonized with 102 other martyrs on 6 May 1984. After being baptized at age 15, Kim studied at a seminary in the Portuguese colony of Macau. He also spent time in study at Lolomboy, Bocaue, Bulacan, Philippines, where today he is also venerated. He was ordained a priest in Shanghai after nine years (1844) In 1846, at the age of 25, he was tortured and beheaded near Seoul on the Han River.
Tuesday 21st September – St. Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist. – He was born in Capernaum and became a tax collector. As such he would have been despised by many, but Jesus chose him as an Apostle. Tradition has it that he preached the Faith in the East.
Thursday 23rd September –St. Pius of Pietreclina-  born on 25th May 1887. He entered the novitiate of the Capuchin Friars aged 16 and was ordained priest in 1910. He lived a remarkable devotion to prayer and the sacraments. He committed himself to relieving the pain of many families, chiefly through the foundation of the ‘House for the relief of Suffering’. He died in 1968.
Friday 24th September – Our Lady of Walsingham – The lady of the manor of Walsingham, Richeldis de Faverches, was instructed by a vision of the Virgin Mary, to build a replica of the house of Nazareth in which the Annunciation had taken place. The vision occurred, according to tradition, in 1061. The original house was destroyed at the Reformation, but, during the 19th and early 20th centuries, pilgrimages to Walsingham were revived.
