Update on Wednesday 25 March

The photos of the children on this year's Sacramental Programme have now been attached to the front benches in church, as you can see on the website. When Fr Dearman and I concelebrate Mass every morning, we can see these photos and remember you all at the altar. Wouldn't it be nice to fill the church with your photos, to show you want to be here too? Email your photo and photos of the family to [email protected] and I will put them (without names) on the benches until we have a full church! I hope you are all keeping well and in good heart. God bless! Fr Allen

Update on Thursday 19th March
