Standing Orders :I know this time isn’t going to be easy for all of us physically, mentally, spiritually and financially but can I make an appeal as your Parish Priest.  The Parish is going to be hit financially through this period because there will be no collections, so we are asking if it be possible for our parishioners to contribute by Standing Order.  The Parish will be still need to pay the monthly levy to the Diocese.  Please email for details.  Your contributions will be very much appreciated.

Mass Offerings : If you would like a mass said for a loved one, please put the offering in an envelope and give it straight to Father John. He will then let Mary and Carole know for the bulletin.
