Collections: The Offertory Collection last weekend realised £495.08 and the Second Collection, £106.98. Thanks to all donors.

Thanks to the Music & Movement Group, for a further donation of £25.

We need help, in the form of more ‘Collection Money Counters’ – particularly after the Sunday morning Mass… If you can spare about 30 minutes – even if only occasionally – please see one of the Pass-Keepers.

R.C.I.A: The next session will be held on Tuesday at 7.30pm in the Hall. As we begin this stage of our journey, we will be looking specifically at the Sacraments and the beliefs expressed in the Creed. All are very welcome to attend.

Live-Streaming Parish Services: In recent weeks, you may have noticed a camera and screen at the back of the Church!

We have been trying out a system, to enable us to broadcast Mass and other Services, live and on line, to those, who for one reason or another, are unable to attend our services in person.

Our trials have proved successful and the camera is now permanently positioned on the ceiling!

We have a growing number of sick / housebound Parishioners, and are keen to ensure that they can keep in touch with Parish Services and Events.

With our new equipment, we can broadcast not only to our own Parishioners, but to others, who may live further afield – perhaps overseas – or are members of other churches -perhaps keen to unite with us for a wedding or a funeral.

Please note that we have paid particular attention to personal identities and that no Parishioners will be identifiable on the Live-Stream!

During Mass, the camera will focus entirely on the Altar/Lectern and at other parts of the ceremony (eg Holy Communion or the Children’s Liturgy), the camera will pan to a neutral position, with no identifiable person in focus.

Memorial Book: If you wish to have the name of a loved one inserted into our parish’s memorial book, please give a note with their full name and date of death to a Pass-Keeper.

In your charity, please remember in your prayers, Fr Carr, Maureen Simpson, Eileen Smullen and all the sick and housebound. Also, James Barrett, Richie Blair, Margaret Buchanan, James Joynes, Peter Maguire, Colleen Malarky, Sarah Marshall, Unity Mulraney, Isabella McLaughlin, George Mitchell, Edward Ryan, George Scobie and Kate Tooey, whose anniversaries occur about this time, and Maureen McAllister, who died recently.
