Welcome to St Giles Catholic Church, Cheadle
From Saturday July 4th, we are able to celebrate Public Masses in Church again.
Public Masses can only be celebrated if we follow strict guidelines and regulations. This is to help keep everyone safe. Please read Fr Eric’s letter.
Saturdays Vigil Masses: St Giles’, Cheadle 3.00pm and 6.00pm
Sundays St Giles’, Cheadle 10.30 am & 3.00pm St Thomas’, Tean 5.30 pm
Mondays 9.15am, St Giles’ & 6.30pm St Giles’
Tuesdays 9.15am, St Giles’
Wednesdays 9.15 am. St Thomas’, Tean
Thursday 9.15am, St Giles’ & 6.30pm, St Giles’
Friday 9.15am, St Giles’
Whilst we are strongly encouraged to attend Mass if we are confident that we can do so safely, there is still no obligation to attend Mass. There will be a strict capacity limit for each Mass, so if you are able to come to Mass during the week, please consider doing so.
St Giles’ will be open for Private Prayer and Fr Eric will be available to hear Confessions on Fridays between 5.30pm-6.30pm. Confessions will be in the Lady Chapel.
Fr Eric will be available to hear Confessions at St Thomas’ after Sunday 5.30 pm Mass.
Guidelines have changed, so volunteer Stewards can now include people from the over 70 age group, if they think they can do so safely. Stewards assist in making sure people are safely seated and in directing people coming for Holy Communion. After Mass stewards will assist in wiping down pews and mopping the floor. Ideally we would have two Stewards at each weekday Mass and four for each of the Saturday Vigil and Sunday Masses at Cheadle. Could existing Stewards and anyone else who is willing to be a Steward for Mass, please contact Fr Eric.
Whilst the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holydays
of Obligation is suspended. Everyone is encouraged to be faithful in prayer and acts of Spiritual Communion.
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.
