News and Events
DAILY MASS We are no longer allowed to keep our church open but Mass is celebrated in the parish each day and each day I try to make you very present in my heart as I celebrate the Eucharist. For those of you who have booked Mass intentions for specific days, rest assured that as far as possible they will be said on the day you have requested.
STREAMING MASSES With our churches closed at present I know that many of you are looking to the internet for streamed Masses to help you in your prayer.

MAKING A DONATION
The parish has lost about £500 per week from the collection baskets on Sundays. We have also lost all income from the Pugin rooms and the car park.
The following address/hyperlink can be used if you wish to make a donation to the parish via our account at the Diocese. https://northamptondiocese.org/donate/
GIVING TUESDAY The Diocese has just introduced a new way of making donations to the parish. All you need to do is phone 01604 712065 and make a donation to the parish. You will need a credit or debit card to hand and you will be able to make a one-off donation to cover missed Sunday offerings or simply call each week to make an offering. Patience may be needed, as only one person will be taking these calls, but if you leave details on the answer machine someone will get back to you! ‘Giving Tuesday’ service will be available between 10am and 4pm each Tuesday.
PENTECOST ROSARY RALLY for delivery from Covid-19
The call is for each Diocese to invite parishioners to pray a rosary alone or with others sometime during the hour slot assigned to them. Our slot is 9am - 10am on Pentecost Sunday, May 31st (Alas the church still has to be shut.)
