Keeping in Touch

This page has been introduced to provide information and resources that you may find helpful during the period in which there are no public acts of worship. 

This Week

Guidelines for Opening of Churches for Private Prayer

Churches may now open for private prayer, if social distancing is established and there are stewards and cleaners are available to guide visitors and maintain good  hygiene standards.

Guidelines for Funeral Services in Churches

From Monday 22 June, it will be possible to conduct funeral services in Church, if they can fulfil the guidelines and risk assessment for opening for private prayer. Numbers will be limited to immediate family only. This cannot (at this time), be a funeral Mass. 

Social Media

With help from some of our social media savvy parishioners we are increasing our online presence and will make as much use of it as we can to help everyone feel connected. It's time for me to dust off the Twitter feed and keep in touch: @catholic henley. When you are watching the live stream, do tweet to say where you are watching!

Resources

 
 
 
 

UNIVERSALIS

One particularly good resource provides the daily readings and prayers for every day of the year. For a one off payment you gain access to the texts for Mass and the various prayers  for different times of the day including Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Compline (Night Prayer). It is well formatted for use on tablets and smartphones which makes it very convenient and portable.

Please feel free to email any amusing or uplifting photos, especially if they are taken while you are cooped up at home or roaming free in the beauty of nature:  sh.henley@rcaob.org.uk
 

Magnificat

This is another good resource with daily readings, prayers and meditations. It is published monthly and is a less expensive alternative to Universalis.

In response to the Coronavirus, Magnificat are now offering their recourses free online.
