We would like to return to praying weekly for our sick and housebound parishioners at Sunday Masses, and including such prayer requests in our weekly newsletter. To add someone’s name to the list, please email or speak to any passkeeper. Please get agreement from the person concerned, and don’t forget to let us know if they no longer should be on the list.


The Archdiocese has asked that 40 Hours of Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament is offered in every parish. We will host this Devotion from Sunday 20th March, and the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed throughout the day on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Please consider spending time in prayer during these days and sign up in the hall if you can commit to specific times. We will need to know that people will be in the church if it is to be possible to have the church open for the three days concerned.
