Thought from Fr. Colm -12th June

We journey onward in anticipation of some churches opening for prayer soon. We must be very careful about how we do this. St. Mary’s in Sunderland will be the first in the vicariate. As we progress we will then decide which churches will follow with times of opening for private prayer. We hope you continue to enjoy the parish packs. They continue to be a great resource for prayer. Again, a big ‘thank you’ to Katie and her team of deliverers. These are uncertain times for our schools. Do keep the teachers and staff in in your prayers.
