Children's Liturgy of the Word
Children's Liturgy of the Word takes place every Sunday during term-time
at the Cathedral during the 10.45am Mass and at St Winefride’s church during the 9.30am Mass.
‘Liturgy of the Word for Children’ aims to bring the message of Christ to children
in a way that is easy for them to understand, enjoy and participate in.
At the beginning of Mass the children are invited to come forward and follow the Catechist
to take part in their liturgy. They return to church to join in the Offertory procession.
Aimed at 2-10 year olds, everyone is welcome to attend, with or without an adult
and we look forward to welcoming both visitors and regular members to our sessions.
For more information or to volunteer please contact:

Sick & Housebound Visits and Emergency Sick Calls
A new system for visiting the sick and housebound is being put in place with a proper referral form.
Every sick and housebound person in the parish will be visited once a month by a Priest or Deacon; 
other visits will also take place during the month by an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion and 
possibly the SVP. For emergency sick calls only there is now a parish mobile: 07592 155 558.
This number will be circulated to all the nursing homes, hospice and hospital
(and will also be quoted on the Cathedral House answer phone message).
The parish mobile will be carried by a priest 24 hours a day, and we will continue this system
beyond the return back into Cathedral House next summer.

Telephone Numbers - Important Information

Please note that all the listed telephone numbers for the Cathedral are currently out of action because of renovation works.
The former numbers will be back in use once the works on Cathedral House have been completed.

The temporary Parish Office telephone number is: 01743 249716 (Mon - Fri 9am-1pm & answerphone)
The Parish Emergency Mobile number (for emergency sick calls is) 07592 155558 (24 hours a day)

We do have a residence phone, but priests are very rarely available on that number as they are only there for meals, sleeping, etc.
Unlike ‘normal presbyteries’ our priests, during this time of building works and renovation, have offices that are separate from their home,
which are not on the site of the Cathedral or other two churches in the parish. Therefore our priests are a little more difficult to contact by
phone at the moment. The best way to contact a priest, regarding a general enquiry, is by coming to church for Mass and seeing the priest afterwards,
or alternatively by email. You may also leave messages on the office answerphone.

Thank you for your patience over this period of works.

Canon Jonathan
