Trócaire: A great number of people collected their Trocaire Box during the week and we hope that this will be a reminder that there are people in the world worse off than ourselves. Trócaire are especially asking our help for the poor in South Sudan at this time. Whatever we give during Lent will mean a lot to them in their need.
Collection Envelopes 2021: We continue to distribute the Parish Collection Envelopes for 2021. A huge thanks to all our volunteers and we would still appreciate a few more helpers. The first collection takes place on Easter Sunday.
Thanks: A huge thanks to all who have continued to contribute to the parish during this difficult time by leaving donations in our collection boxes in the church and donating online.
Sacraments of First Holy Communion & Confirmation: We hope to be able to celebrate these sacraments in our parish after Easter. It will depend on when level 5 restrictions will be eased for church gatherings. We encourage the children and parents to continue to prepare for these special occasions in their lives by prayer at home and using the relevant section in class religion book – Grow in Love.
Parish Office & Sacristy: Remains closed until the Government Level 5 restrictions end .
