How can I join in with our community?
We are going to pray together as an online community on Saturday evenings at 6pm and again on Sundays at 10.15am.
Saturday evening will take the form of Evening Prayer taken from the Divine Office
and Sunday morning will consist of the readings from Mass ( Liturgy of the Word) together with prayers and some hymns/songs.
We would be delighted if you could join with us in any or all of these prayers.
We will use a videoconferencing program called ZOOM which is available for PCs, Macs, tablets and smart phones.
If you feel you would like to try this you will need to download and install the software. ZOOM is available as a free account, so please don't sign up to any payment version.
It all sounds rather intimidating for the novice but please, please give it a try if you would like to join in. Getting the best out of this technology just takes a bit of courage and a willingness to learn. We were all first timers once!
We'll try and help you as much as we can, and we think that after a couple of goes you'll be wondering what all the fuss was about!! It would be great to see you and have a chat...
Once installed click on 'Join a meeting' and enter the ID number and the password.
In order to receive the ID number and password please email Holy Family parish and you will be given the details required.
Please do not share these details but ask people to email for their own, due to newly increased security settings from ZOOM, and so we can keep in contact.
Intercessions and Readers
If you wish to write and/or read intercessions at these services, please email them to the Parish Office, and let us know if you are willing to read them, and we will try and incorporate them into the service.
Also please let us know if you would like to read at one of the services so we can organise things in advance.
