Message from Parish Priest - 28th February 2021

 

As the government laid out the roadmap to come out the current lockdown, I am sure that many of you now feel relieved and a little more optimistic than before.   I am so pleased that we are now in the position to set the dates for this year’s First Holy Communion and Confirmation preparation courses. 

 

Baptism preparation and Wedding preparation courses will also be able to resume in April, while RCIA will resume via online platform very shortly, thanks to our catechists and enthusiastic candidates!

 

For those whom have not filled the "Faith and COVID-19" Survey, please follow the link from below to complete.  It is totally anonymous so you can be as candid as you want to be!

Online Survey "Faith and COVID-19" launched!

 

 

We have recently launched a short online survey “Faith and COVID-19”.  It is an anonymous survey and it will only take a minute or less to complete!  We would like to hear how you have been doing and where the church may be able to help / assist to maintain your mental and spiritual health.  If you have children at home, please encourage them to participate in the survey wherever possible.  Printed version is available on the back of the church for those who are not online.

Thank you for completing the survey in advance!
