PRAYER LINK & CANDLELIGHT PRAYER

One of the most important things we can do is to pray for one another and to help people to do this we have a “Prayer Link” in the parish.

DONATIONS AND MASS INTENTIONS

The coming weeks will be difficult for all of us, and we want to be here for you during these difficult times. So that we can continue to provide that support to the local community, we ask all of the faithful who are able to do so, to continue their regular giving to the parish, which would otherwise lose vital income. 

PRIESTS AVAILABILITY

If you want to speak with one of our Priests, for personal support or spiritual direction, you can meet them in the churches when they are open or email them.
