Due to Covid 19 restrictions, we have to close our churches for worship again, from Thursday for a month, until Monday 2nd December. Only funerals in church or crematoria, for up to 30 people, and burials, including burial of ashes, will be allowed. All other public services must stop, so there will be no public mass in any of our churches from Thursday onwardsI attach the document from the Bishops’ Conference.

Daily broadcasts of Mass on YouTube will resume from Thursday 5th November. There will not be a live stream on Tuesday 10th November because of a Funeral Mass at Lulworth, but thereafter, it will be at 10.30am every day except Monday. Check the newsletter for details and click here to link to daily Masses on YouTube (usually available before midday on the day of the service).

A big thank-you to Fr Tim for his regular YouTube and Facebook broadcasts which have provided
spiritual support and comfort to many over the past several weeks.

Father Tim has been compiling a list of parishioners with email addresses, to keep in contact, and send information. It is already 120 names long, but I am sure there are more he hasn’t got. So if you would like to be included, send your address to Father Tim, and he will add you to the list. Timothy.lewis@prcdtr.org.uk
