Housebound & Hospital

2021-Sept-20:  Although public health restrictions have been eased and the vaccination programme has been quite successful, we are not yet ‘out of the woods’ with the Covid-19 pandemic.

Accordingly, our Ministers of the Eucharist are not in a position to resume the weekly service of bringing Holy Communion to our housebound parishioners, to the Maternity Hospital and to Strand House, at this time.

Easing of Restrictions

2021-Sept-04:  Under the latest plan from Government for national recovery from Covid-19, it has been announced that religious ceremonies may be attended by greater numbers than at present.  From Monday 06 September 2021, the upper limit is set at 50% of the church capacity.  This will facilitate the holding of First Communion and Confirmation ceremonies, allow for more people to attend funerals, and set us on a path towards the eventual return of normal conditions for attendance at Mass.

Confirmation and First Communion

2021-July-02:  Sadly, it has become necessary to defer the First Communion and Confirmation ceremonies, which we had planned for July, until further notice. This is to comply with the latest advice from government and in the interest of public health. Parents and children have been informed.

Holy Week Reflection

We hope that parishioners will be able to participate in our ceremonies through the online presentations.  Usually, people have a booklet to take home but not this year.  For those who wish to reflect on the events of Holy Week, we will publish the introductory narratives, from Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Saturday, under Events, after each ceremony.

Easter Dues & Clerk’s Collection

Once again, it is going to be difficult to distribute the collection envelopes to parishioners.  They are now available in the Church, organised by area, some with the name of the usual distributor attached, some without.  If you are able to deliver a batch in your home area, your help is much appreciated.
