Feb/March 2021 lockdown - we are still open!

Churches are still open for communal worship despite the national lockdown announced on the 4th January. Our churches will remain open for the celebration of Mass and are both Covid safe. Please note that booking is essential for weekend Masses in both Chapel and Buxton; you will find booking details below.

The safety of our communities remains our priority and we remind you that the Sunday Obligation continues to be lifted and this doesn’t mean that our faith has to be put on hold. We understand that many of you are shielding or are feeling anxious about the current situation and we encourage you to participate in our regular livestream Masses, from both Chapel and Buxton.

Remember John's Gospel (1:5) and its message of hope and strength:

“A light shines in the dark, a light that the darkness could not overpower”.

DO YOU WANT TO FAST THIS LENT?

POPE FRANCIS SAYS:

“Fast from hurting words and say kind ones
Fast from sadness and be filled with gratitude 
Fast from anger and be patient 
Fast from pessimism and be filled with Hope 
Fast from worries,put your trust in God
Fast from complaints,become more tolerant
Fast from the pressures of life,be prayerful
Fast from selfishness,be compassionate
Fast from grudges,be reconciled
Fast from bitterness,be joyful
Fast from words,be silent and listen.”

FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT 
As we enter the second week of Fairtrade Fortnight, let's remember to buy products with the Fairtrade label whenever possible. By doing this we to make sure that the wages which farmers and workers have been paid are fair and do not exploit them.
 
MULTI-FAITH CLIMATE CHANGE FORUM
As part of Fairtrade Fortnight, the University of Derby are holding a Climate Change discussion with people from different faiths. They will be talking about the actions that their faith communities are taking to help to address the rise in extreme weather conditions caused by climate change, and there will be a chance to ask questions. Extreme weather affects the poorest communities the hardest, and many foods that we consume every day are produced by people living in these regions. The live forum will be held online on Tuesday, March 2nd, 5 - 6.30 pm. To register and login to this (free) event go to      https://derbymultifaith.eventbrite.co.uk
