STAYING CONNECTED DURING COVID-19 CRISIS If you can, please reach out – stay connected – with each other – perhaps phone someone who normally sits near you at Mass to say hello; text or email someone to see how they’re getting on. Thank you to our team of volunteers who are helping to “letterbox drop” printed copies of parish bulletins to parishioners who don’t have internet/email access – we appreciate your help very much.  If you’re talking to someone who might not have an email address, ask them if they’re receiving the bulletin each week and if not, we can add them to our list!

23 March 2020 – Corona Virus Update – Update on Mass Closures – NO WEEK DAY MASSES OR SUNDAY MASSES

Posted by on Mar 24, 2020 in News & Events | 0 comments

Dear Brothers and Sisters It is with sadness that I announce that due to the Corona Virus we are no longer able to hold any Masses or public Sacraments for the foreseeable future. With time we will learn what is permitted and what is not.  I’ll inform you as soon as I reliably can. This means no further week day or Sunday Masses at all. Funerals can only be held at the graveside and only with immediate family members.  This too may be restricted. Baptisms and Weddings will, at this stage, not go ahead. The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick and Viaticum will be offered as long as I am...
