Times of Mass and Devotions
We regret to announce that the celebration of public Holy Mass will be suspended in all churches from Friday evening (20th March) until further notice.

 The church buildings will remain open for private prayer throughout the day.

Fr David will continue to celebrate a private mass daily (with a server to answer).  At these masses your intentions will be offered – so if you would like a mass offered for a particular intention please email the office or leave a note in Fr David’s porch.

Please see the calendar for times and join in from home as you can.  To see Mass being celebrated from your computer please go to:  https://video.nest.com/live/rnGBB2DbEn for this week only.

By next Sunday a YouTube channel will be operating and you can watch from your Smart TV or from a computer.  The video and sound quality should be much improved on YouTube.  The YouTube address for your computer is https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSu7XW8eUCP7gz7-rat_PFA  Or search for Parish Priest Cranleigh on your Smart TV

Please note *Private Mass means that Father David will celebrate Mass with no congregation,

but you are able to login to see the Mass being streamed LIVE using the links above

The Parish Office will be open on an ad hoc basis over the coming weeks.

Rest assured emails and telephone messages will be received and actioned where necessary.

Email: office@cpcb.org.uk  or Telephone 01483 272075 see website for updates www.cpcb.org.uk

 

INTENTIONS: Your intentions for your loved ones are still accepted and the Mass with no congregation will be offered for their intentions, please join in with the streamed Masses.  Intentions can be emailed to office@cpcb.org.uk.

RECONCILIATION: Father David is making arrangements for the safe ministry of receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  The Day of Reconciliation will go ahead on the 4th April according to the new norms.  i.e. no large gatherings.  Social distancing etc.  A screen will separate penitents from confessor for the safety of both.  Please watch this space for further info.

SPIRITUAL COMMUNION: St. Thomas Aquinas once defined Spiritual Communion as “an ardent desire to receive Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament [in Communion at Mass] and in lovingly embracing Him as if we had actually received Him.”  In these times when we cannot be together for Mass you can be there ‘in Spirit’ and in your ardent desire to receive Jesus.  It may be helpful to watch one of the streamed masses, or to become recollected in your place of work, or at home if you are busy for a few moments and think of that deep-down desire for the Lord which you hold within you.

It may be helpful to say a prayer such as this one:

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

WEEKLY OFFERINGS: are still welcomed! The best way is to contribute by asking your bank to set up a standing order.   If you cannot or do wish to offer via Standing order please feel free to  drop an envelope into the letterboxes outside parish office and the sacristy door of St Thomas More.  Bank Details for Standing order to HSBC Acc No: 71078607 Sort code: 400520

OFFERTORY ENVELOPES I have new boxed sets of envelopes for parishioners in the Gift Aid scheme for the new tax year.  Please either email me or ring me and I will check your address and deliver your envelopes.  Contact Trish on 01483 271314 or 07835 452898 or trish@charters.eu.com

The community helpline has been set up to direct residents to services that can help during the coronavirus pandemic:

The helpline will not be able to provide any public health advice (please use existing services such as NHS 111) or answer general enquiries relating to council services.
