Year of St Joseph

On Friday 19th March we celebrated the Solemnity of St. Joseph. Pope Francis has invited to enter into a ‘Year of St. Joseph’. Please find Prayer for the Year of St Joseph Link to a lovely Novena to St. Joseph, also on the Diocesian Website. There are some paper copies available in the Church Porches.

Dare to Dream

Bishop Declan invites each one of us to take time during this coming Lent to reflect on the life of our Diocese as we move forward out of the pandemic. Inspired by the writings of Pope Francis, ‘Dare to Dream’ encourages us to think about God’s invitation to each one of us to shape the future of the Church, particularly in this corner of the world. Each reflection is accompanied by a video which we encourage you to watch before engaging with the scripture offered. This resource can be used by individuals, by families or by already established on-line parish groups.

Full details and resources can be found in the Dare to Dream Page in Top Menu

Dear all, as we know, the government has imposed a new lockdown as from the 6th January. We are however still allowed to celebrate public Mass with the present COVID-19 protection in place. Baptisms and funerals can still take place with restricted numbers. Let us remain a prayerful community in the midst of these times.
With all my prayers
Fr. Tom
