SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION
Fr Celestine and Fr Frank are available to celebrate this sacrament either before or after weekday and Sunday Masses or at a time that can be arranged for convenience. Please speak to our priests.
SACRAMENT OF THE SICK (MINISTRY OF SPIRITUAL CARE)
Both Deacon Tommy and Fr Frank are available to bring Holy Communion to any of our parishioners who are presently unable to attend Mass. Please let us know to arrange a home visit.
PRAY FOR THOSE WHO ARE SICK
We pray for all our sick – parishioners, family, benefactors, and friends, and all who care for them on our behalf.
Many thanks to all our parishioners for your generosity towards our parish and clergy, it is most appreciated.
CLEANING OF THE CHURCH
We ask for more volunteers to help with ‘deep cleaning’ and sanitising of the Church during the summer months – to help relieve the work of our present cleaners and perhaps offer them a rest.
Deep cleaning and sanitising takes place each Saturday morning from 10am to 11am – any length of time (given by volunteers during this hour) would be most appreciated.
Our grateful thanks to all our parish cleaners at weekends/weekdays and to our parish stewards and to all the parishioners who have organised our Sunday weekend Mass telephone bookings – again we are truly thankful for these and all services and sacrifices given by our parishioners for the benefit of us all.
SUNDAY 15th AUGUST 2021
Next Sunday is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Our Sunday Masses next weekend (prayers, readings) will be proper to this Feast day.
