Archdiocese Letters

26th June.  The Archbishop’s of England have issued a Pastoral Letter outlining the basis on which we may celebrate public Mass again from 4th June.  That is accompanied by a document Guidance for the Celebration of Mass which each parish must follow

27th May 2020.  Archbishop John’s letter to the Prime Minster setting out his desire to re-open church buildings.

18th March 2020.  Archbishop John has produced a Pastoral Letter setting out his message as public Mass is stopped for the time being

Mass

Churches are not being closed. Buildings are being closed. You are the church! You are to remain open!

The church may be shut for public Mass whilst the virus is around, but we would encourage you to watch Mass via our webcam (live streaming is set to go live 5 minutes before Mass is due to begin):

  • Our Lady Immaculate, Tolworth
    • Sunday Masses: Sat 6.30pm (Vigil); Sun 10am
    • Weekday Masses: 9.30am (9am Sat)
      • Download this Sunday’s MASS SHEET so you can follow along at home
      • Mass sheet for Pentecost Vigil (Saturday evening) can be downloaded here
      • June’s weekday Mass sheet can be downloaded here

Scripture

Reading scripture is always a good thing, not just whilst we are cooped up at home. The following is a selection of websites which provide scripture excerpts along with a commentary, some of which can be emailed to you daily.  Many of the below would only take 3-4 minutes to read, others a little longer:

  • Daily Catholic Gospel from Bishop Robert Barron.  Free email to you each morning with a link to the Gospel reading and a short commentary
  • Bible Alive is a subscription printed service delivering a booklet with a months supply of daily bible readings with commentary
  • Catholic Daily Reflections is a website with commentaries on the day’s scripture readings (amongst other resources) and the ability to have a free email with daily reflections
  • Universalis has so much more than just readings – this works really well as an app on your phone or iPad, and for a one time fee, you can download it onto serval devices
  • The Word Among Us is a vast resource of online material
  • Pray as you go is an audio prayer experience (free) which you genuinely, pray on the go!

Children

MISSIO As the coronavirus causes schools to close, Missio has produced free, downloadable resources to use with younger children in homeschooling, or for staff caring for younger children in school, and they plan to add to the range in the near future.
