Welcome to our parish website

Christmas 2020 Arrangements

Because for Christmas Masses the size of congregations is larger than normal all the Coventry parishes and other parishes are operating free booking systems. You will be very welcome but we are not allowed just to have people turning up over Christmas as we have to have accurate numbers to make sure the churches are not over-crowded and comply fully with social distancing regulations.  And so, it is important you book your seat(s) for Mass. When you come to church you will need to wear a mask and adhere to track and trace requirements. 

To book your Christmas Mass at Sacred Heart please send a text to 07891103592 giving your name, your choice of Mass time and the number of people attending. Please note this number is to be used for TEXT MESSAGE ONLY. You will receive a text reply within 24 hours confirming your place(s). Our Christmas Mass times are:

Christmas Eve 4.00pm Christmas Eve 7.00pm Christmas Day 10.30am.

Make an Act of Spiritual Communion
This can be done whilst you watch a live stream of Mass being offered. You can make an act of Spiritual Communion by saying the following prayer:
“My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.”
