OUR LADY OF GOOD COUNSEL CHURCH
280 Nottingham Road,
Eastwood, NG16 2AQ
Services in church
Following the suspension of all public worship in Catholic churches to support the country, civil and NHS authorities in keeping people safe, and managing the spread of the Covid-19 virus, the latest Government advice is that everyone should stay at home and only leave home for the reasons outlined in the guidance.
This means that Our Lady of Good Counsel Church will remain closed everyday until further notice and will not open on Sunday mornings as previously notified.
All parish Masses, prayer groups, meetings and activities are suspended. Further information will be posted on the parish website and social media as and when it becomes available. Catholics are dispensed from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass for the duration of these measures, however, the bishops are encouraging people to watch live-streaming of Mass and make a spiritual communion.
Please let others know who may not have access to social media or the website.
Canon John Berry
It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Canon John went to the Lord peacefully in his sleep on Wednesday 25th March 2020. Canon John's private funeral will be held on Tuesday 7th April at 11.45am. As we are not able to join the funeral nor celebrate Canon John's life at this time, let us join together spiritually, whilst staying at home, to pray for the repose of Canon John's soul. Once life returns to normal we will hold a memorial service to celebrate the life of our Parish Priest who will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace
