Update from Fr Bill

Dear Parishioners

I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying the beautiful warm weather we are experiencing at the moment. I am sorry for those of you who have been trying to contact the Parish Office by telephone – unfortunately, the phone line has been down since the beginning of the week. If you do have an urgent enquiry, then please email the Parish Office at office@st-josephs-epsom.org.uk where emails are being dealt with on a daily basis.

As you will have read in in last week’s Newsletter, Fr Ruslan will be away for a couple of weeks during August and I have therefore decided that there will be no Masses on the following dates:

Monday 10 August,
Monday 17 August,
Monday 24 August
and Monday 31 August;

and

Tuesday 11 August,
Tuesday 18 August,
Tuesday 25 August
and Tuesday 1 September.

I do apologise if this causes any inconvenience – this also seems an appropriate time to remind you all that the obligation to attend Mass on Sunday is still currently suspended, so please do feel free to attend Mass at the weekday 10.00a.m. Masses that are being celebrated.

Please also remember that face coverings will be mandatory in places of worship from Saturday 8 August, so please do remember to bring yours with you when you attend the Church.  If anyone has not either made or bought a face covering, they can be purchased from the Creative Card Ladies!

Just following up on concluding the Sacramental journey for our Candidates on the First Holy Communion and Confirmation programmes, we have now agreed the dates for these Masses in October and will be in touch with the Parents / Candidates next week.

Thank you again for your continued support to the Parish especially the Volunteer Stewards and Cleaners, without whose support we would not be able to open our Church for the celebration of Mass.

May God bless you and keep you all safe.

Fr Bill, Fr Ruslan and the Sisters
