We are the parish which Includes Immaculate Conception and St. Dominic, Stone; Sacred Heart, Eccleshall; Holy Michael Archangel, Aston-by-Stone. We hope to keep you well informed during these strange times and offer some thoughts and prayers.
I am sure you are aware of the tragic consequences of the explosion in Beirut this week. Aid to the Church In Need are in the disaster area and struggling to bring relief to the victims. They have asked if we can support them. I am happy to do so and we are having a collection. Your appeal gift will be transferred to support the aid workers on the ground within days. I apologise that I have dropped this appeal on you without warning. There will be another opportunity to give next weekend if you are unable to donate this weekend. What makes this a double tragedy for us, is that it has occurred in the Christian quarter of Beirut. Many of the victims were Christians and 10 churches have been destroyed. This explosion has done more harm to the Christian community than all the years of civil war.
I am aware that the virus has affected many incomes but please be generous if you are able.

As you may be aware, in accordance with government guidelines, the wearing face coverings is now required by all attending Mass, unless they are exempt from doing so.
There is no longer requirement to book a place at Mass in our churches. Please come to the Mass of your choice. If you wish you may come to more than one Mass.
