WELCOME to some of our Rainbows, Guides and their leaders who will be leading us at mass this Mothering Sunday.

CONGRATULATIONS to our First Holy Communion families who celebrated First Reconciliation yesterday. I was struck last week when the BBC apologised to Gary Lineker and the press said they had been ‘humiliated’. You have to be ‘humble’ and not ‘proud’ to say sorry, but it makes all the difference when you know our God is always merciful. Thanks to those prayer buddies who contacted their families last Sunday.

CONFIRMATION, 7:00pm 19TH JUNE 2023.
Bishop Patrick will lead us in our celebration. The programme is open to Yr8 (12-13 yrs) young people and upwards, starting week beginning 17th Apr. Chris Fitzgerald will lead the programme and still needs 3/4 adult leaders. Could that be you? Please contact Fr Gerry or Chris if you can help. 

CHAPEL PARISH PASTORAL COUNCIL will next meet on 30th March at 4:00pm. Please give any agenda items to Barbara Hindley or Sue Thornhill.

Thanks to everyone who came and took part last Sunday. John Cassidy, the chair of the Centre Management Committee brought us up to date with the new arrangements. Yvonne Ripley reminded us of our responses to the Synod questionnaire. Maggie Baldock and Paul Ripley shared their experience of visiting other local churches and highlighted their emphasis on welcome and refreshments. We want to thank all those who prepare the refreshments after mass on Sundays and those who are ‘buddying’ the First Communion families. The Parish Council invited new members and thanked Fabio Ferolito, who has recently ‘retired’ from the PPC.

RECEIVING HOLY COMMUNION FROM THE CHALICE - will be reintroduced at mass on Maundy Thursday, 6th April . It will be the choice of the communicant and we shall have an extra Eucharistic Minister at both Chapel and Buxton. Please do not receive from the chalice if you have a cold or cough . The minister will say “The Blood of Christ”; please reply “Amen” and take the chalice. A leaflet is available at the back of Church and on the website, outlining the meaning of the Eucharist and our celebration of Mass. Click to read more
