Update from Fr Bill

Dear Parishioners

As you know, we were delighted to be able to celebrate Mass at St Joseph’s from last Monday, 6 July. Just to remind you, our Masses are:

Weekdays Monday through to Friday Mass will be celebrated at 10.00a.m. every morning.

Saturday Mass will be celebrated on Saturday evening at 5.30p.m.

Sunday Mass will be celebrated at 10.30a.m. in the morning and 5.30p.m. in the evening.

Confession will be available after all Masses.

Now that we have started to celebrate Mass, we have decided to cease our Private Prayer sessions and the last one will be on Friday 10 July.

Those of you who have attended Mass this week will have noticed the changes that we have had to put in place to meet the Diocesan guidance for re-opening for the celebration of Mass and hopefully, over time, these practices will become our ‘new norm’ for the time being.

For those of you who have not yet had the opportunity to come to Mass, please continue to follow via St Joseph’s website; just click on the red button for access through to Vimeo and follow live or later, as it is recorded. The obligation for Sunday Mass remains suspended. That said, you are most welcome to attend any of the Mass times as advertised above.

Please continue to pray for the parish especially those who have asked us for prayers, and if you are able to keep up with your financial support this would be greatly appreciated. If you have not already done so, please consider taking out a standing order or if you do online banking pay directly into the parish account: RCD OF A & B St Joseph Epsom a/c no 71076221 sort code 400520. I would very much like to thank all those who have so generously continued to contribute to our parish.

God Bless to you and your families

Fr Bill, Fr Ruslan and the Sisters

Epsom & Ewell Foodbank PleaFoodBank

Thank you once again for your unfaltering support - without your donations, the Foodbank couldn't do what it does. Over the last two weeks our wonderful teams of volunteers have made in excess of 220 deliveries and fed over 530 people. Most days they have fed in excess of 40 people, with a few days doubling that.

As the lockdown eases and people venture out, there is a feeling of things returning to 'normal'. However, for the Foodbank, we think our current mode of operation will be in place for a good while longer. Our current list of items in short supply is below with places to drop off your donations.
