Thank you to everyone for your cooperation and prayers on Ash Wednesday. Many people were able to come to receive their ashes as an outward sign of interior conversion. If you weren't able to receive the ashes, please remember that the same movement of the heart towards the Lord is entirely possible and is what really counts. We also send our prayers and best wishes to all the families who have been on half-term this week - we hope you have had some respite from the online routine and enjoyed some good time with each other. We pray, most of all, for God's blessing on each person, family and household throughout the parish and beyond.

The holy season of Lent began on Ash Wednesday and today we celebrate the First
Sunday in the Lenten journey. In the liturgy today we are invited to join the Lord Jesus in his own journey through the wilderness. Here in this place we are invited to leave behind the little creature-comforts, ideas and fantasies that do not correspond to the true reality of radical friendship with the Lord. Like him, we will surely be tempted to look back, but the God who speaks to us in the scriptures and in prayer surely has the power to keep us on the right track! Lent is a season for fasting, prayer and giving alms for the poor. You can read below about the Cafod Lent Fast Day and other opportunities for giving alms. Let us go forward together, in friendship with the Lord, towards Easter and the Promised Land of heaven.

Lent is a time of reconciliation. If you would like to celebrate reconciliation, confessions are available each week in church at 2pm on Saturday afternoons.

Saturdays 4pm & 6pm
Sundays 9am, 10am, 11am, 12 noon
Monday-Friday 12 noon

Thank you for your cooperation regarding the parish office. It is not possible to come in person - please ring or email. If you want to telephone us, please do so between 9.30am and 2pm (Monday-Friday).

The Covid-secure procedures continue at here at church. Please stay away if you have any symptoms or if it is safer to stay at home. Please use the hand sanitiser on the way in, and wear the face covering inside the church. We must all observe social distancing inside the church, and there can be no mixing or mingling before or after Mass. Thank you.

Thank you once again for the tremendous response in Advent towards our collection for the Food Bank. All the goods were taken over before Christmas and were gratefully received by those who could distribute them where needed. During Lent we will resume our collection. Items can be left at the back of church. Please remember to bring items that are non-perishable and non-frozen. As well as food, other items such as soap and shower gel etc. are also suitable.

This coming Friday is Lent Fast Day
