Fr Richard's Message:
25th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Yr B)
Friday 17th September 2021
My dear people,
Another week in lockdown has gone past but we can be encouraged by the easing of restrictions which will start tomorrow. Although most of them may seem a tad insignificant, the slight relaxation of the restrictions around meeting people outdoors will be welcomed by many, I am sure. [Read more]

SEPTEMBER - SPRING has SPRUNG !!!
Spring is in the air! Even though we are still in lockdown, there are signs of hope and new life all around us. So for the month of September, the parish is asking you to share these with our community! If you are on a walk, or in your garden and see something beautiful, take a photo, and send it to us either on our FB page or email address! And let us flood our page with God's signs of hope!!!
Please use the #springhassprung and post photos on facebook and we can find it!
We can't wait to receive your images!

BIBLE STUDY in the PARISH
JESUS: THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE is a 10 week course that runs fortnightly on Tuesdays at 7:45pm via Zoom during the lockdown. This course provides us with an opportunity to explore the life of Jesus in a deeper way through the Gospels and draws upon Jesus' fulfilment of the old testament in the hope that we can come to know him better and love him more.

This study gives you an opportunity to continue on your faith journey and the fellowship that have already begun. This journey is not meant to be walked alone so come and share your life with others!
