Important Announcement:

Covid-19 Arrangements for Our Lady of the Valley

buy Lyrica in ireland Mass and other services in Our Lady of the Valley parish will be restricted until further notice.

There is still no Sunday Obligation, numbers are limited in Church, masks must be worn, and Masses will be brief with no singing.

We are now back to normal in standing, sitting and kneeling, and receiving Holy Communion during Mass.  Anyone who perhaps feels safer by sitting throughout the Mass, please feel free to do so.  Thank you to all who cooperated with us in doing things a little different to usual these past months, in doing so helping to keep yourself and others safe.

Live Simply Thought for the Week...

Food waste causes just as much damage to our planet as plastic waste.  Think about all the energy and resources it takes to produce, process and transport food.  When we throw food away, we’re not only wasting the food, but the energy that’s gone into making it.  For example the water footprint (the amount of water used in production and supply) of an orange is 80 litres, for 1kg of lettuce it’s 240 litres. By cutting food waste, the average UK household can save £500 each year and positively contribute to the UK’s waste reduction targets.  ACTION: Reduce food waste by buying what you need, freezing leftovers, and check food and buy accutane online 30mg use-by and best-before dates regularly. 


Pastoral Letter from Bishop John for the 1st Sunday of Advent - W/E 27-28 November 2021

Pope Francis - "Fratelli Tutti" - On Fraternity and Social Friendship

Essential reading for Catholics...

"Anyone who thinks that the only lesson to be learned [from the coronavirus pandemic and the way we have responded to it] was the need to improve what we were already doing, or to refine existing systems and regulations, is denying reality."

CoronaVirus – Supporting and Helping Each Other

The measures put in place by the Government at this very difficult time are to help all of us to be protected in the best way possible. Many of us will be isolated and this, inevitably, causes other problems. We must all support and care for each other in whatever way we can. Some Parishioners will become very lonely and need a visit or a phone call, others may need shopping or lifts to appointments, there will be a variety of needs within the community. But always keep in mind the need to adhere to social distancing instructions.

Members of the SVP will be doing all that they can to help but we want to extend what we are doing to all Parishioners. If you are someone who does not have to self isolate and would like to help please take some of the cards from the box at the back of church and give one to anybody you are aware of in your area who may need help. The card gives them your contact details offering your help. (Click to download)

This is a great opportunity for us to “Love one another". We must all pray that these measures have the best possible effect and put our trust in God’s love and compassion.

If you would like support in any way please get in touch with Peter on 01200 441081 who will help or give you a contact for someone who can.
