Lights In The Night Small

Dear Parishioner and Visitor

We are still observing all the required measures with distancing, enhanced ventilation, facemasks and limited seating etc. With the recent rise in Covid cases in this area we do not feel that relaxing these measures is a sensible thing to do at this time (July 2021)

Fr. Kevin

Since the month of October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary, the Rosary will be recited publicly after each weekday Mass, and will be recorded for YouTube.

We will continue to record some Masses on YouTube, and also to Zoom Mass on Sunday morning. The full timetable can be seen below.

We will keep this situation under constant review. Please keep looking on this website for updated information.

We would be delighted if you could join with us in any or all of our prayers.

Services during the next days:

(Unless announced otherwise, our usual timetable is as follows)

Morning Prayer of the Church Saturdays  7.10 am ZOOM congregation in parish homes

Because of the time taken to process and load recordings for YouTube viewing, we cannot give exact timings. You should be able to watch recorded Masses from around 11 am for Morning, and 8 pm for Evening, but please be patient in case we run into problems.

What's the difference between ZOOM and YouTube?

YouTube is a website where we place recordings of our Masses, so you can watch them later, whenever you like, and as often as you like.

ZOOM requires you to log in and be present at the time of the service so you can be a part of the service, a part of our community, and also have the opportunity to see and talk with other parishioners, without leaving your home (ZOOM is a video conferencing program). If you wish to be part of this please contact the parish office so we can send you the codes you require. Some computer literacy and simple equipment is required, but be brave and have a go.

MORNING & EVENING PRAYER OF THE CHURCH

As well as our church services we pray together as an online community, using ZOOM :-

Simple Morning Prayer on Saturday morning, start at 7.10am

Evening Prayer on Wednesday evening, start at 6.00pm

NEW TO ZOOM?

We use a video conferencing 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 passcode.

In order to receive the ID number and passcode 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.
