Thought from Fr. Colm - 30th April 2020

Firstly, can I say how glad I am that the parish packs, the phone calls, the daily reflections etc are giving some semblance of staying in touch. The strength of any parish community will always be expressed in times of crisis. We are also on a learning curve as to how best be there for all, especially the vulnerable. So please bear with us as we adjust. An area of concern to society at large are the less fortunate, especially the children. Our schools are rising to this challenge also. One of our initiatives is to try and be as available as possible and you will see in the bulletin a first plan to do this. Again, can I thank so many in the parish and schools who are rising to this challenge. Don’t forget to keep those phone calls and texts going. Stay safe.
