Since the beginning of the Covid pandemic, until the present time, we have shared with you our judgment that the situation of the last two years has meant that the Sunday Obligation has been impeded and has needed to be fulfilled in other ways. We thank God that this situation has now changed. The pressing challenges of the pandemic have lessened significantly. Most people have resumed the wide range of normal activities, no longer restricted by the previous Covid measures.
We therefore believe that the reasons which have prevented Catholics from attending Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation no longer apply. We understand there will still be some members of our congregations who, for reasons of health, do not feel safe enough to return to Mass. It has always been the understanding of the Church that when the freedom of any Catholic to attend Mass in person is impeded for a serious reason, because of situations such as ill health, care for the sick or legitimate fear, this is not a breach of the Sunday Obligation. It is intended that this Sunday Obligation should return from Pentecost Sunday celebrated on 5th June.
UKRAINIAN REFUGEES IN RUGBY AREA
Hosts in the Rugby area have been welcoming refugee families into their homes. Sacred Heart hosted the first of our coffee mornings last Wednesday. We welcomed nine Ukrainian families and it went well. Thank you to the team who helped prepare refreshments. Our Parish has agreed to run a Coffee Morning and other refreshments on Wednesday mornings each week at 10am to 12 noon . We are able to offer a safe and welcoming place where people can gather to support one another at this difficult time and support and help can be offered or arranged as needed. Offers of help welcome to make drinks and provide small cakes or traybakes. If you would like to help please contact Diane on 07951177910.
Fr Hudson’s Care on behalf of the diocese are working hard to coordinate and help to support efforts being made in various parts of the diocese. They have much expertise in working with refugees and asylum seekers over many years. They are receiving many requests of support through St Chad’s Sanctuary in Birmingham. They need vital funds to expand and develop the support which is vitally needed. Thank you for your Support. Any cheques to Fr Hudsons. CAR PARKING AT ENGLISH MARTYRS WEEKEND MASS TIMES : We have been asked us to move from our usual parking place in the Playground which will be marked for games use . We have been offered the use of the School Car Park . There are a similar number of places but we will need to park sensitively and carefully with regard to other users so the capacity can be used. This will begin from next weekend. We thank the School for the use of this facility.
