Sunday marks the start of the most important week in the Churches liturgical year as we follow Jesus’ passion and resurrection. As churches are closed we can’t collect the Holy Week posters so here are two versions for you to print and display in your home windows as a sign of hope (remember to fold the He is Risen part and display on Easter Sunday) THIS IS HOLY WEEK POSTER
In response to the Prime Ministers Statement on Monday 23rd March, Bishop John has said:
In line with The Prime Minister’s statement no churches in the diocese should open again until these restrictions are lifted. This means further restrictions on weddings and baptisms, none of which should now take place.
I encourage you all to live our Faith in a different way. Consider creating somewhere in your homes that you and your family can go to pray during these days, the Church continues in each of us.
Private mass can still be offered and I am thankful to all those parish priest who have been able to make this available via streaming.
These are unprecedented times and it vital that we all do our part to protect the most vulnerable.
Mass from St Vincent’s can be viewed here and will be streamed below when services are live.
We are a vibrant community and come together to worship our Lord Jesus Christ in our two churches of St Ethelberts and St Williams here in Bolton.
Our churches are St. Ethelbert’s and St. William’s. If you click on the links you can find more information about these churches and their locations etc. Masses are split between the two churches and these can be seen in the Parish Calendar.
You will find a large, mixed and varied congregation who participate in all sorts of parish activities and functions. We have many different groups.
We invite you to come and share in our beautiful worship of God through our various services and ministries. We ask that you have a look at our website, where hopefully you will find something of interest that sparks your thoughts further about our Lord.
If you have a special intention or want a prayer sent then please feel free to ask us. You can do this by adding your request in the contact form.
