For Communion Ministers, Readers and Welcomers: A Rota for the Period has been produced and sent out digitally to those who subscribe to receive it. Hard copies are available in the churches. It includes notes for when and how many Ministers will be required. Currently only 1 Reader per Mass is required. More Ministers are likely to be required when the current Government Regulations and Guidance, and the CBCEW Guidance is changed. Martin (Rota Programmer).

"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink" ... In truth I tell you, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me." {NJB Matthew 25:35,40}
