FR DAVID WRITES:
Easter is a season of fifty days of joy which flows towards the great feasts of the Ascension and Pentecost. The new life which Easter brings to the Church has been witnessed recently in our parish as we welcomed new adults into the Church, we celebrated 63 First Holy Communions and 41 Confirmations. May is the month of Mary, the Mother of the Risen Jesus. Please join us this afternoon (Sunday) at 5 pm in church for Rosary, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction as we mark this special time.  God bless you all.

ASCENSION - FR DAVID WRITES:
This Thursday we will celebrate the Feast of the Lord's Ascension into heaven. The New Testament tells us that the Risen Christ appeared to his disciples for 40 days after Easter before his Ascension. On the fiftieth day, the promised gift of the Holy Spirit was given at Pentecost. The time between Ascension and Pentecost is a period of intense prayer for a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit. These feasts mark the culmination of the Paschal Mystery. As Ascension Thursday is a holy day of obligation there will be Masses here at 8 am, 10 am and 7.30 pm. The car park will be available for all Masses that day.

CONFIRMATION 2019:
We welcome Bishop John Sherrington to our parish to preside over our Confirmation celebration, which takes place on Friday, 17th May at 7.30 pm. Candidates are reminded of their rehearsal, which begins at 7 pm sharp on Wednesday 15th in the Hall.  Please bring your sponsor with you if possible, if not an adult should accompany you.
CANDIDATES - Please arrive at 7 pm on Friday and meet in the Hall.
