“You do not need to call NHS 111 to go into self-isolation. If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days, contact NHS 111 online. If you have no internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999.”

Going Into Hospital?:

If you, or if a family member or friend, need a visit from the Catholic Chaplain, you must ask one of the nurses to contact the Catholic Chaplain for you, giving your name and ward. Fr Charles Miller, the Catholic Chaplain, can anoint you or hear your confession. If you know when you are to be admitted, it is better to approach your own Priest for the Sacrament of the Sick prior to going in. The QE Chaplaincy Office number is 371 4568, where a message for the Catholic Chaplain can be left. If you wish to be visited by Fr Charles, Hospital RC Chaplain, please ask a ward nurse; if you wish him to visit an RC patient, ring 0121 371 4563 (not the switchboard), leaving a message with patient’s name and ward.


Cardinal Vincent Nichols announced Wednesday 18th March that, in view of the Coronavirus pandemic, we are not to gather in our Churches for public acts of worship from now on.


The obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holydays is removed because of this pandemic.


Helping the self-isolated:

The “We Care” Group has been set up by a group of parishioners to help those who may need shopping, medicines or just a phone call to chat. If you want to volunteer or ask for help, contact John Finnegan who co-ordinates the group – 07879 486692 / johnfinnegan@btconnect.com.

Also see “Help your friends and neighbours” below.

Help your friends and neighbours.

This little leaflet can be downloaded and printed off so that you can deliver it your friends and neighbours. The leaflet gives various ways that you can help during the Coronavirus crisis.

There are four leaflets on an A4 sized page which can then be cut up ready for delivery. Just click on the graphic on the right to download it ready for printing off.
