 Mass Intentions. The greatest gift you can give a loved one deceased or living is the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass. In the Parish Masses we have the opportunity to offer such Mass for your own intentions and for them. Most of our Masses have no Intention. I would like to encourage parishioners to be able to offer Masses.

Please pick a Mass envelope at the back of the Church where you can book a Mass, together with your offering either dropped in the Sacristy or through the Letter box of the Presbytery-The Priest’s House.

Thank you very much.

NOTE: There will be Adoration on every Tuesday from 18:00 to 19:00 and on every Saturday from 09:00 to 10:00, ending with Benediction. All are welcome!

 Covid – 19 Route Map for Churches.  I hope everyone is aware with the latest Government regulation easing on the Restriction on Covid – 19 that has an impact on places of worship. The Bishop’.s Conference of England and Wales has issued a circular following the Government’s announcement which comes into effect on Monday July 19th. However much of what can be done has been left to local situations. As result of this we can’t begin to implement the changes as they need to be applied to particular and local circumstances. With a small group of parishioners, we will meet this week to path the way forward. At the moment we will kindly request everyone to do the needful that is at all times to wear your mask while in the Church. You can find on the Parish website a link to the whole document/Circular of the Bishop’s Conference.

Thank you so much for your cooperation.
