Dear Brothers and Sisters,
We are inevitably approaching the
possibility of a second wave of the pandemic. Many of us will naturally be
worried and anxious for our wellbeing and for our loved ones. As Catholic Christians we must have the hope
and trust in God’s loving protection for us from the harm and danger of being
infected with this dreadful virus.
I encourage you to fervently pray
for the development of a safe and effective vaccine and also that the people of
our society will act responsibly and behave unselfishly for the good of
everyone by adhering to Government’s guidelines and restrictions.
Below is a prayer that I share
with you as we continue to journey in these unprecedented times.
Dear Lord, During this trial
I offer up to
you my confusion, give me clarity.
I offer up to you my despair, give
I offer up to you my weakness, give
I offer up to you my pettiness,
give me generosity of spirit.
I offer up to you all my negative
thoughts from Satan,
so that when he asks “where is your God
I may respond, “Right here with
me, giving me His grace as a Heavenly beam of light penetrating your darkness!”
May the Lord grant you peace and
everything good as we live our lives to take care and support one another.
SUNDAY OF THE YEAR
Give the Lord glory
God alone is king and
to him we
must give the homage
our love and
All temporal power is
to God’s rule over
We must get our
right - God first;
all others only
in relation to Him.

A Personal Message from Father Antony
While Mass is still being celebrated every Sunday at 11.00am
and on Monday and Tuesday’s at 09.15am I do appreciate that you may find it
difficult or unsettling to attend a gathering at Mass at the moment. Please be
assured that, when we meet as a parish, all of you are remembered in our
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for your
continuing generosity in these strange and difficult times, without which we
could neither maintain our parish life and parish family with the worship of
Christ in the way we do now. I am very aware of the straightened times in which
we live, and I marvel at the kindness of all of you who continue to help me in the vital work of upkeeping our parish.
As, with yourselves, the bills for the parish do keep
These bills are normally met by your generosity of your
donations to the weekly offerings.
You will understand that, in these strange times, the
offertory collections are much reduced.
While you may not feel able at the moment to attend Mass I
am asking that you consider how you could continue to support the parish
financially for the good of the future of the parish.
Opportunities for giving can be found in the ‘Offerings /
Gift Aid tab of the website.
