Welcome to all our Parishioners and Visitors

 

§§§§§§§§§§§§§§§§§§§§§§§§§§§§§§

 

 

 

Covid rules have been relaxed, but we still want everyone to be safe.

 

Now is the perfect time for those who have been away from Mass to think about coming back. We have missed you and we know you have missed us.

You can be confident that our's is a safe environment.

 

Livestream Mass is alright, but in no way compares to physical attendance in church.

Only come back if you do not have any flu-like symptoms, and please wear a face-covering, which we are still encouraging everone to don.

 

We have recommenced singing communally at the 10am Mass.

Let's get out those hymn books!

 

We have recently reintroduced the offertory procession, the collection at the conventional time and done away with the one-way system. You can now exit through whichever door you choose.

 

We will retain the ‘contactless” sign of peace, holy water via the “contactless”. We will not yet reintroduce Holy Communion by way of the chalice or the physical sign of peace.

 

We will retain the use of our stewards who have done a magnificent job over the last years.

 

Holy Communion on the hand is still preferred.

Covid Precautions

 

The Sign of Peace has returned without physical contact (just reverently nod or bow to those around you as you say "Peace be with you").

 

Contactless Offertory Giving is now available for those who prefer not to use cash. See the DONA Machine in the church porch

 

Although our Masses and services continue as normal, obligation for those Catholics who cannot attend Sunday Mass, or for those who are carers, still                    remains suspended; 

if you are physically unable to attend Mass in person, you can watch from home via churchservices.tv/Corby and make your Act of Spiritual Communion which the priest reads out.

 

Thank you,

Canon Michael and Fr Sujith.

About Us:

 

Your priests live in Corby, in Our Lady’s Presbytery, which is located next to the church on the busy Occupation Road within the heart of the older part of Corby town. Corby is our main centre of Catholic population. Corby has four parishes, two of which are ministered by fr Gerard Byrne who is Parish Priest of St Brendan's and St Patrick's.

 

 

When recently appointing Canon Michael as Diocesan Vicar General, Bishop David appointed Fr Sujith John as Assistant Priest at Our Lady's in order to share the Pastoral responsibilities in our parishes.

 

As well as serving the Parish of Our Lady we also serve St John Ogilvie's Church in Danesholme.

 

Our Lady's church celebrated its 80th birthday on 25th March 2018. We have been around for a long time, ministering to the spiritual and pastoral needs of the local people, in keeping with the teachings and traditions of the Roman Catholic church.

 

If you are new to the parish or area, please feel very welcome to come along to a weekend Mass. Our main family Mass is at 10am on Sundays. Children’s Liturgy of the Word for children in school years Reception, 1, 2 and 3 is at the 10am Mass each Sunday urging tern time. We also have a Saturday night Vigil Mass at 6.30pm and the new addition, 8.30am Mass, introduced recently due to Covid. If you are worried about crowds the 8.30am Mass is for you. Also the 5pm Massat St John Ogilvie's NN18 9BX.

 

We are a friendly congregation and newcomers are always welcome. It would be great to meet you so please do introduce yourself to the clergy after Mass.

 

We are blessed to have many people serving in the parish in a variety of ways so please do look at the Parish Life and Groups and see how you might be able to get involved.

 

If you would like to be a Steward at any of our churches, we need more, so please volunteer if you can. the more Stewards we have, the more services we can provide. 

 

Among those serving is our full time Parish Youth Worker, Rick Netherwood, who organises youth ministry for young Catholics all over town. If you are between the ages of 11-35, or have relatives that are, then take a look at the Corby Young Catholics page to see what's up next. We are always looking for adults who would be happy and willing to help as leaders too.

 

If you cannot find what you are looking for on here or need to get in touch then please feel free to call or email our administrators Maggie and Kay in the parish office between 9:30 - 12.30 Monday to Friday or if you're in the area why not pop by the presbytery (parish house).

 

Whether you are just visiting or if the parish is like a second home to you, we hope you enjoy browsing our website and we look forward to seeing you soon.

 

With every blessing,

 

Canon Michael Harrison

Fr Sujith John
