Welcome to St Peter’s website.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve often found over the years that whatever Lent we might plan for ourselves other challenges have a way of taking over and this is certainly true for all of us during these difficult days.
Do pray for one another and, in spite of the ever changing difficulties and pains, continue to keep your hearts open to Jesus and to the needs of our neighbours.
God bless and protect us all
ACT OF ENTRUSTMENT OF ENGLAND TO MARY
Next Sunday at or around 12 noon we are invited to join our hearts together and rededicate our country as Mary’s Dowry. This has been planned sometime ago and is particularly fitting at this time of need. Prayers and further details at https://www.behold2020.com/covid19
With our churches closed at present you might find it helpful follow a streamed Mass for example from our Cathedral at Northampton www.northamptoncathedral.org.uk
from Walsingham www.walsingham.org.uk.
You may have already found your own preferred site. Some parishioners have suggested www.kilrushparish.com/
Please pray for the repose of the soul of Marie Ayres-Regan
and for Nina Doskowska.
PRAYERS DURING THE CORONA VIRUS OUTBREAK
The Liturgy Office for England and Wales has put together a beautiful selection of prayers for this time of need. https://www.liturgyoffice.org.uk/Resources/Flu/Prayer-Flu.pdf
SOME CHANGES: NO PUBLIC MASSES The Bishops of England and Wales have agreed to the cessation of public liturgies until further notice. The obligation for the faithful to attend Sunday Mass is removed until further notice. It would seem that we are no longer allowed to keep our church open
BAPTISMS are deferred until the end of the crisis.
RECONCILIATION only on request as long as hygiene and social distancing requirements are observed
FIRST COMMUNIONS AND FIRST RECONCILIATION are postponed until we can gather safely again
CONFIRMATION is deferred until we can resume public worship
MARRIAGES are no longer permitted
FUNERALS The service should take place at the graveside or at the crematorium. A memorial Mass should be offered when congregations can gather safely again
Let us all remember that we are all still called to pray to Almighty God and to love and serve one another with great sensitivity especially in these frightening times. Holy Mass is screened each Sunday at Northampton Cathedral. Another fine example of this is from The National Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham which will continue its full liturgical programme and this will be available to all via the Internet (www.walsingham.org.uk)
