Lord Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Holy Sacrament of the altar.
I love you above all things, and I passionately desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, come spiritually into my heart,
so that I may unite myself wholly to you, now and forever. Amen

Following the 1metre+ protocols, people coming into mass will have to wear a face mask or covering, which they will be permitted to lower to receive Holy Communion
We have re-opened the church for individual private prayer & public celebration of mass
A comprehensive risk assessment has been undertaken. The risk assessment is in line with the advice that has been issued by the Bishops’ Conference.
The important social distancing measures are now in place. The signs are in place. We’ve got separate doors to come in and out. We’ve got the sanitisers at the entrance and the exit doors. We have stewards on-hand.
Everything is ready to welcome you back!
The two welcomers will ensure that everybody who comes into the church is observing the guidelines issued by the government. They will be in the church during any periods that the church is open, to ensure that social distancing rules are adhered to and that EVERYBODY sanitises their hands both ENTERING and EXITING the building.
During this period, it must be pointed out that persons (including Clergy) considered ‘Clinically Extremely Vulnerable’, persons shielding (including the Over 70’s), or persons isolating with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 should not be returning to mass, to work or volunteering within a Parish
From Saturday 4th July – PLEASE TAKE NOTE
FACEMASKS: People coming into Church for mass will need to bring a mask or face covering. This will need to be worn throughout the mass. They will be permitted to lower it to receive Holy Communion. This is in compliance with the 1 metre+ protocols that are in place
The vulnerable should carefully consider the wisdom of returning to Mass too soon. They are not obliged to do so. The Sunday obligation has not been re-instated. Those who are able are encouraged to gather on a weekday rather than a Saturday evening or Sunday, to release the pressure on weekend Masses.
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)
In an emergency
It is important that on admission to hospital, a patient (or his/her carers) inform the admission staff that they are Catholic. The hospital will not ask for this information, it is up to the patient to make it known and to make sure that a note is made. As of September 2018, Gloucester NHS no longer employ a catholic chaplain. In an emergency, 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
