COVID19: Prayer and Worship at Home

Click HERE for more information on our Coronavirus (COVID-19) page.

This prayerful, meditative reflection comes from Fr James Hanvey SJ, former Master of Campion Hall, Oxford and currently serving in Rome at the Jesuit Curia.

It’s a thought-provoking piece for these times of uncertainty and anxiety as we look to arrest the global spread of COVID-19.

Maintaining things as they are does not transform and change people’s lives – getting involved in parish life will help to do that!

I celebrate a private Mass daily in the Church and in the bidding prayers I pray for the parish and your intentions.

All Masses for which intentions have been received will be celebrated on the dates as close to those originally agreed as possible, but I will not be able to guarantee the date.  All Masses will however be celebrated.

Anointing of the Sick

If you know you are going into hospital, please ensure that you are anointed before you go in, as visits to hospitals have been severely restricted.

ANY and ALL requests for visits within the hospital at this time must go through the Chaplaincy office at the hospital (and not directly to your parish priest)


If you are Catholic and have been admitted to Cheltenham or Gloucester hospital, and require a chaplain please ask the nursing staff to contact the CHAPLAINCY OFFICE at the hospital (Please ring 03004 222 222 and ask for the on-call Catholic Chaplain).

If you need a priest, other than for the hospital, and you can’t contact the parish priest at Sacred Hearts please contact the Cheltenham Dean at St Gregory the Great, 10 St James Square, Cheltenham, GL50 3PR, on 01242 523737
