St Agnes Parish Bulletin 2nd August 2020

The usual schedule of Masses has resumed in the Parish but is still operating on a trial basis.

Those attending Mass need to make themselves aware of the Diocesan Regulations (available on the internet) and are also asked to follow the notices and advice given on entering the Church … for example, the markers showing where to sit on the pews and the need to follow the entry and exit one-way system, which may vary depending on the size of the congregation.  The procession to the Altar to receive Holy Communion needs to move very slowly.  We  are asked to approach the Altar one row of seats at a time and to observe social distancing of two metres while walking and waiting.

Masses in the local Parishes have begun again and most are following the schedule published on their Parish Websites.

We are taking registrations now for the second running of our online

Summer School ‘Theology, Spirituality and Religious Experience’

…  starting on August 10, it also ran this July. 

The course consists of 10 online lectures by Fr Pat Collins C.M. given over two weeks and we were delighted to receive hugely positive comments from participants who took part in July; see just two examples below.  
 ‘your talks are refreshing me, rekindling my spirit  and renewing my enthusiasm…. Refocusing on the centrality of religious experience is vital and extremely helpful’
‘The eyes of my mind have also been enlightened, as I gained a fresh understanding, from a range of Christian and other perspectives, of the nature of genuine religious experience as well as of the inherent dangers that can lie within that approach’.
