  • Important Information COVID-19

    Olton Friary is obliged to launch full Contact Tracing for the Church and Hall. We have implemented Contact Tracing built on the NHS Covid-19 Smartphone App supplemented by a Parish Online Form. All parishioners must register their attendance each time they visit the Friary.

    Please read the full parish guidance on our Parish COVID-19 page:  Olton Friary COVID-19 Page

    To register your attendance using the parish form please follow this link:  COVID-19 Track and Trace Form

    To download the NHS COVID-19 SmartPhone app please follow this link on a smartphone only: NHS COVID-19 App

    IMPORTANT - Roadmap out of Lockdown

    STEP 2 - 12 April to 17 May

    Each individual from a single household must scan the QR code with their own NHS COVID-19 smartphone app if they are 16 or over. This is because an instruction from the app to check for symptoms, get a PCR test or isolate is delivered directly to an individual and therefore cannot be used collectively for a household. If an individual age 16 or over does not have the app they need to use the Parish Online Form to register their details. With the transmissibility of the virus greatly increased with new variants it is vitally important to follow this guidance. More informaton is available here: Olton Friary COVID-19 Information.

    Parisioners must maintain social distance at Church and not mix. This is to ensure that Olton Friary remains a Covid-19 secure environment. We have been both lucky and blessed so far and as the situation improves we cannot allow for complacency to become common place. With many parishioners gathering for services it is important that numerous people don't mix in the time after church especially in the car park or garden after open air services.

  • A Message from Fr. Biju

    text

  • Hello, and a very warm welcome to the web site of the 'Church of the Holy Ghost and Mary Immaculate', Olton, known as 'Olton Friary'!

     

    I am happy to extend a warm personal welcome to both parishioners and visitors through our web site. I hope that as you browse these digital pages it allows you to gain a snapshot of our life as a Parish Community; to see some of the many ministries and activities that make up our dynamic parish.

    The message of the 'Gospel of Christ' and the liturgy, equips us not only to promote the values of the Gospel, but to live and share them with our brothers and sisters. We have many groups of people within our parish, who dedicate their time, energy and resources, to work together, to proclaim the mission of the Catholic Church in our local community.

    I hope that you find this web site beneficial. 'Where two or three are gathered in Jesus' name, there he is present amongst them' (Mt.18:20) May the presence of the Lord bless and guide our thoughts, prayers and actions.

    Fr. Biju Antony Panthalookaran 

    SCJ Parish Priest
