Thought from Fr. Colm - 12th April

Easter brings us to that special time of the year which, we as Christians can call our own. We gather also as ONE parish to celebrate all that we have worked so hard for over these changing times. We are a Christian, Eucharistic community - everything we do in church by way of liturgy, and as part of our enjoying the beginning of Spring. We will have a good rest. Our schools especially - those very hard working teachers deserve that precious rest. Do enjoy.

We have our Mini Triduum which is hugely important for the sick and the housebound. Please do support this event. It is at a convenient time. It offers the sacraments plus good company. Carers, parishioners, please keep extra vigilance for those whom you think might wish to come to this event.
