Parish News and Announcements  

Apologies there are misprints in this week's parish bulletin. Anne Hearne's funeral took place on Thursday 17th June therefore there are no funerals being held in the parish on Thursday 24th June. Also, deposits for the Youth 2000 Retreat are to be returned to Katie Flood by July 1st, not June as mistakenly printed.

Returning to church has been a real blessing for all of us and slowly we take tentative steps towards getting back to some normality. For many of us it’s the opportunity to sit in silence for Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, or just immerse ourselves in the quiet reflection in church before Mass. I think the soul desperately needs the solitude that church affords us.

To be with others who have that same need is also very supportive.

“Let silence take you to the core of life.” Rumi.

We continue with our First Communions this weekend. Different settings than before, but so so powerful. We keep all our First Communicants in our prayers.


St Joseph's 11am Mass has been FULLY BOOKED for Sunday 20th June. Please do not try and attend if you have not booked a place as you risk being turned away.
