Pastoral letter from Bishop John 17th Jan 2021

There is a pastoral letter for the Bishop this weekend.  You can re-read his letter on the pastoral letter button at the to of this k page, or there is a link so you can listen to the Bishop himself reading the letter.

Our Churches are now closed - as from today 11th January 2021

Due to this new strain of Covid-19 spreading as fast as it is, I have taken the difficult decision to close our churches again, until it is deemed safe to open again.  I will let you know as soon as that happens, here on the web site, as well as on the parish Whatts App group, and hopefully by word of mouth.

Mass will be streamed every day as usual, please do come and join me if you can.  Stay Safe - God Bless us all.

For your information

The Requiem Mass for the late Beryl Rafferty will be on Friday 15th January @ 11:30am

The funeral service for the late Ellen Marie Carey will be on Tuesday 26th Jan @ 11am


For those who may be interested, St Patrick's have set up a watts app site.

Go see what people are up to!
