Parish get together
Sunday 21st November at 10:30am.
There will be coffee & biscuits in the community rooms “between the Masses” at 10:30 am on Sunday 21st November.
A chance to come together again, to welcome all our newcomers, and to welcome Fr Stephen in his new role as Sacred Heart’s Parochial Administrator. Doors open and weather permitting we can overspill outside. It’s been too long, please come along.
This week’s newsletter will be uploaded to The Sacred Heart Teddington Parish Newsletters page any day now, just as soon as the website allows!
New Mass times
From Saturday 2nd October 2021 onwards,
new weekday & weekend times are:
Weekday Mass : 9:30am Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday
Saturday: 9:30am – 11am Adoration; confession available in this time
Sundays: 9:30am & 11:15am Mass
Singing is back, but without hymn books as yet, so we will be singing the most familiar ones.
Please join in, behind masks is best for now.
..And on this note, in consideration of others and vulnerable parishioners, can we ask that at Mass everyone continues with the mask wearing that we are all familiar with, notably:
Please do not come to church if you are experiencing flu like symptoms,
– use the hand sanitiser provided on entry and exit
– Wear face coverings if you are able
Volunteers, can you help out?
As people begin to return, we are still lighter on numbers than in pre Covid times. If you feel you can lend a hand at Mass, we could always use more volunteers to share the light load:
- Cleaners. Grateful thanks to everyone who has been helping wipe down the benches and clear the decks after Mass. Please grab a cloth and join in if you can, it takes about 15 minutes, and is a nice way to catch up chat whilst wiping down.
Anyone who has an hour or so to spare in the week/weekend, to help clean the church more generally, please sign up at the back of Mass and Joan will be in touch. Our cleaning rota is getting bigger, thank you wonderful volunteers, but a few more hands help spread the task – you wont be asked to take on more than you can manage.
- Duty Parishioners, we have just 3 for the 11:15am, and none for Friday morning mass, can you help?
- Readers, we have had some wonderful new readers, please join them.
- Eucharistic Ministers
Please put your name up for whatever you can do on the lists at the back of church. There is a Sacred Heart WhatsApp volunteers group, just put W/A next to your name and phone number on the volunteers list, and one of the group members will add you.
Churches across the country continue to stream live and recorded masses. We all have our favouries, but if looking for a change from your usual one? click here for details.

Fr Reg continues to be away from the parish, we keep him closely in our hearts and prayers at this difficult time for him and his family. Father Stephen at The Sons of Divine Providence has been wonderfully stepping in to say Masses over these past months. We have them both deeply in our prayers and hearts.
