Parish of Saint Cedd, Goodmayes
FEAST OF ST CEDD:
Today at 11.00 am Mass we celebrate the Feast of St Cedd, the Patron Saint of our church. We would like to wish you a very happy day hoping that our great Saint will intercede before God’s throne in heaven for us, our families and our parish.
WE REMEMBER ESPECIALLY IN OUR PRAYERS:
THE NHS TRACK & TRACE:
To support the NHS Test and Trace programme, we are asking for contact details of Mass attendees, as well as recording times of attendance. It is sufficient to have the details of only one person in the family/couple attending. In line with official guidance, we will keep your details safely and in compliance with GDPR legislation for 21 days before securely disposing them. We will only share your details with NHS Test and Trace, if asked.
If you consent to providing your information for this purpose, please either complete the form collected from the porch and place it in the black collection box located on the confessional upon entering the church or scan the QR code using NHS Track & Trace App. This is to be done at every mass you attend.
If you wish you may also download the form from our parish website, print, complete and bring it to the church (download available here).
THE ROSARY PRAYER:
During the month of October that in a special way is dedicated to Our Lady of Rosary we say the Rosary Prayer from Monday to Saturday 20 minutes before our morning Mass.
BOOK OF LIFE & THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER:
November is the month when we especially remember all those who have died. THE BOOK OF LIFE containing the names of the dead will be placed on the sanctuary and remembered at Mass during the month. If you wish any names to be added and included in the Masses, special envelopes are in the porch. When completed please hand them to one of the priests, bring to the Presbytery or place in donation boxes placed on confessionals.
ROSARY WHIRLWIND BRITISH ISLES:
The Rosary Whirlwind Mission for October culminates in the National Rosary relay Rally across the Dioceses of the British Isles on Saturday October 31st (Eve of All Saints) from 9am to 9pm. Dioceses are invited to take an hour. The designated Hour for our Diocese is from 11 am. During this time we are invited to pray the Rosary (sometime between 11am and 12 noon) before we hand on to the next Dioceses.
To join this spiritual initiative we will celebrate our morning Mass (31st October, Saturday) at 11am and then say the Rosary Prayer while the Blessed Sacrament is exposed until 12noon. There is no confessions on this day.
We need your help after our Masses when the church needs to be sanitized every day and cleaned on Friday. If you are in church during the week or on Sunday you are more than welcome to stay couple of minutes and help.
ST CEDD’S CATHOLIC CLUB LTD:
Our Club as many others is experiencing a very tough time. The Club has reopened but currently has little custom and, unless there is a rapid increase in use is likely to close again. The Club was founded on the basis of support and fellowship for the Parish but also needs to be financially viable. Please remember that all parishioners are most welcome to visit the Club and we assure you of all security standards.
Thank you for your collection last week £654 (£205 loose, £449 envelopes).
These are very worrying times for everyone and we are grateful for all the support we get.
