Masses suspended

All Masses have been suspended from Friday until further notice, this includes funeral Masses but not services at the graveside or crematorium.  Friday 12.15pm Mass (20th March) will be our last.

We are working on live streaming Sunday Mass to our website and we will post further information to our website when this becomes available.

The church will be open as usual from 7.30am – 6.00pm (or thereabouts) each day.  There are prayers as you come in and sheets for Stations of the Cross. Do come in and pray.

There will be a bulletin emailed to you, posted on the website and available to collect at the back of church each week.  If you have not already signed up to receive these then please sign up on our website if you wish.

You can still email us with things for the bulletin.  (These might be helpful ideas about the current situation and what we can do.)

Please let me know if you are self-isolating, if you wish to.  We have set up some groups round the parish and could link you into one of these to keep contact with you.  Please keep an eye out for those who may be alone.

Do not hesitate to ring the presbytery or call round.  Leave a message if no one is in.

Prayer is very important at this time.  It is in prayer and in the presence of Christ in our community as the body of Christ that binds us together whether we can physically get together or not.  We are never alone when Christ is present with us.

“In a Christian Community everything depends upon whether each individual is an indispensable link in a chain.  Only when even the smallest link is securely interlocked is the chain unbreakable…Every Christian community must realise that not only do the weak need the strong, but also that the strong cannot exist without the weak.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer
