PUBLIC WORSHIP SUSPENDED
Whilst churches are currently closed and the clergy in the Diocese have been told not to use the churches even for their own prayer, we are continuing our worship by publishing a service on the website. So you can still be part of the worshiping community at Holy Cross from home. The Sunday Mass is being recorded early on Sunday morning and is then posted on the website in time for the usual service time of 9.30am. The text of the service is also on the website so that you can join in the worship.
Sunday 7th June is Trinity Sunday. On Trinity we celebrate the three different ways that God is experienced by us, as God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Go to the web page from 9.30am on Sunday morning to take part in the service.
Thursday 11th June is the Feast of Corpus Christi, the Latin for ‘Body of Christ’, also known as Day of Thanksgiving for the Institution of Holy Communion. There will a service held on Zoom, details to follow.
