Survey about for us all about loneliness
Whether or not you are affected, ROC Woking – the community needs organisation set up this year – would like everyone to take just a few minutes to complete a simple on-line survey which asks about loneliness and social isolation and tries to identify their causes. The intention is to follow up the results of this survey with action and practical provisions to help make Woking people feel happier and more connected. The link to access the survey is:https://www.facebook.com/WOK.ROCOr search @WOK.ROC from within Facebook. A hardcopy version, if anyone wants one will be available, on request, in mid-January.
For the present, Mass with congregations will continue. Any further updates will be posted here. For latest guidance from the government on this subject click here.
There will be no Morning prayer before weekday Masses but the rosary and exposition after Mass will continue.
Next Saturday, 28th November 11.00-13.30,the diocese has arranged a Zoom meeting to address the question of how we, as Catholics, as Christians, should respond to the call to serve the wounded world? Whatever your situation, come along to reflect, pray and explore this call put forth in the new document from the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue and the World Council of Churches called “Serving a Wounded World in Interreligious Solidarity”. You can access a copy of thisdocument via the following link. It is a short document and quite easy – and interesting – reading.
