Questions and Answers
Here you will find some answers to common questions...
I am self-isolating. How can I stay in touch with the Church?We are livestreaming Mass from St Clare's every day at 9:30am, and will also publish homilies, reflections and prayer resources on this page. Pastoral support is being offered over the phone. Information about confession and the anointing of the sick is given below. You can also use our social media platforms - Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (all @StClareFulwood) to keep in touch. We are committed to keeping the community close together, even if we cannot be physically with one another.
I am self-isolating and struggling to cope. Can the parish help me?Yes. Fr Andrew and a team of parishioners are available to offer support and practical help. Please don't hesitate - contact us to discuss your situation and we'll do what we can to support you. Use the contact form below or call 01772 719604. Offers of help from parishioners are also welcome. Please also contact us if you could join our team of those offering support to those in need.
Can I still go to confession?Confession is available on request. Please contact us via the website or email, or on 01772 719604 to make an appointment. Safety measures are in place.
Can I receive the anointing of the sick?We will offer this sacrament, wherever possible, to those in need of it.
