Our young parishioners returned to school these past few days, though in very challenging circumstances, not least the fact that many of them have not been in school for many months! Let us keep in prayer our schools— pupils, teachers, staff and parents—that they may be safe and happy as a new year begins.
So much hard work has gone into creating a safe learning environment for our children.

First Holy Communions

should have been celebrated in our parish in June, but could not be due to restrictions caused by the pandemic. Those children who took part in our Parish Programme are now able to receive their First Holy Communion, but obviously not in the way that we had previously planned.
We will not be able to have all the children at one celebration, and numbers coming along with any of our children will have to be limited, but it is good that our children can now receive Our Lord for the first time in Holy Communion.
We will hopefully have more information next weekend as to how we can move forward.

While it is so good that we are able to come into church again and celebrate Sunday Mass in our parish, please remember that there is still no obligation to attend Sunday Mass during this time of pandemic.

Thank you again to all our stewards, through their generosity we are able to come into church.

Take care and keep safe.
God Bless you and your families. Fr. Paul
