Notice: Covid-19

Due to the current lockdown, the Church will only be open for Sunday Masses:  8am, 10am, and 6pm.

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy New Year. Also, I would like to thank you for the Christmas Offering and your kind presents and cards over the Christmas. Your generosity is much appreciated.

I have taken the decision that during this current Lockdown to cancel the weekday Masses. Consequently, the Church will be open only for Sunday Masses at 8am, 10am, and 6pm.

It is with great sadness that we are in another Lockdown, but I personally feel it for the best. The important thing is to keep each other safe and well. I am sure that our current situation will change once the Vaccine has been widely distributed. Let us thank God for the scientists who have made such advancements and especially for all who work tirelessly in our N.H.S. In our own parish, let us particularly remember the residents and staff of the Amy Woodgate Care Home and for all our parishioners who are on their own and self-isolating.

These last nine months have been a challenging and difficult time for all of us. We must endeavour at all costs to try and keep positive, ever assured that God is here with us amidst these times of uncertainty and despair. We perhaps might do well to meditate on the sufferings of our Blessed Lord and to ponder the anguish the Blessed Virgin Mary must have endured when she saw her crucified Son on the Cross because of the Love He has for us all.

May God continue to keep you, your families and loved ones safe and well.

With my love, prayers and blessings to you all.

Fr Stephen.
