A number of our parishioners are shielding and unable to attend Mass during this pandemic, so we will try and help and keep everyone in contact.
Our aim is trying to reach as many people as possible through this website, by phoning those who do not have computers, and by videoing the Mass for those that do have computers. You can be part of this effort by phoning those who are isolating.
Sadly, the new 'Lockdown' rules commencing Thursday 5th November prevents us from holding public acts of worship. However, we are allowed Private Prayer in our churches from this date. We will re-commence the recorded Sunday Mass, Wednesday Mass and Friday Talks once again from Friday 6th November for the period of this 'Lockdown'.
You can watch these Services by clicking on the appropriate Vimeo link.
We pray for all who are sick or who have died and for our front line staff. If you give me the names, they will be included in the Mass. But as well as this, as a church we are listening to what God may be saying through this crisis.
God Bless and protect you.
