WEEKDAY MASSES : Weekday Masses will resume on Tuesday 9th July.

MASS INTENTIONS: Due to no weekday Masses for a period of what will be seven weeks, all Mass intentions have been moved to a future date.

I will try and fit the Mass intentions in as quickly as possible but please bear with me.

Thank you for your co-operation, Clare.

CONFESSIONS AND EXPOSITION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT: There will be no Confessions and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament for the next three weeks. They will resume on Saturday 13th July.  

FROM FR DAVID: I just want to say how deeply grateful I am for all the prayers, best wishes and acts of thoughtfulness I received over the last week; it has been very encouraging and helpful for me. This is actually the first bout of covid that I have had and I am truly glad that it is over. I have to say however, that it has left me very tired and lacking in energy. Following what I have been advised I shall therefore just concentrate on the essentials of weekend Mass for the time being and see how things go from there.

Thank you for your continued understanding. Fr David
