The our inaugral Mass of the silver jubliee of the consecration of our Church. The Mass will be live-streamed in the parish hall thus enabling more of us to attend.
We ask parishioners to dress in warm clothing to ensure their comfort whilst being in church during the colder months of the year.
This Sunday is World Mission Sunday, a day of prayer for the evangelization of the world. It’s the one Sunday in the year when the entire global Church comes together to support mission.
Now that the colder months of the year are here, parishioners should dress in adequate, warm clothing to ensure their comfort whilst being in church. Current government guidelines require that the Church must be adequately ventilated by keeping doors and windows open whilst Mass is in progress; this means that the heating will not be kept on after the commencement of Mass. We adhere to social distancing guidelines whilst seated, and to the ’Rule of 6’, please ensure that all the pews are used so that we can keep everyone as safe as can be whilst in church.
Thank you for your understanding, and patience.
The 25th anniversary of the consecration of our Church is on 31st October 2021. The inaugural Mass for our Jubilee year will be held on Sunday 1st November 2020, the feast of All Saints, at 10am presided over by Monsignor John O’Toole.
To enable as many parishioners as possible to attend this celebratory Mass, and given the current restrictions of numbers in the church due to Covid-19, it will be streamed in the parish hall thus enabling those who are more vulnerable to attend.
All the current safety precautions will be adhered to. Communion will be distributed to those in the hall following the current practice. Let us gather, safely, to thank God for our parish, and parish family.
If you would like us to include the faithful departed of your family or friends who have died in the last year in the Book of Remembrance please write the name, in block capitals, on a piece of paper and place in one of the weekly collection boxes.
Envelopes are now available for you to put names of deceased relatives and friends whom you would like to be remembered during November. Offerings may be placed in the envelope so that a Mass may be offered either for those whose names you have submitted or for the Holy Souls in general. The names will be placed in a basket in front of the altar during November.
