  Latest Newsletter - Sunday, 21st April 2019

A WORD OF THANKS: On behalf of the Parish team, we would like to extend a very sincere few words of appreciation and thanks to everyone who has been involved in our Liturgies throughout Lent and especially over the past week. They were truly beautiful liturgies from the Chrism Mass on Tuesday evening until our Easter morning Masses today. To our Ministers of the Word, Ministers of Holy Communion, choirs, organists, servers, the many people involved in the Good Friday Passion, the washing of the feet, our dancers, to the Parish Pastoral Council, our collectors, ushers, those bringing forward the gifts, altar society, hospitality teams, to all who prepared the cross and the tomb, to our dedicated Sacristan, and to each one of you, the people who came in such great numbers to pray and to journey with us during the time of preparation and celebration, a very sincere thanks to you all. May each one of you and your families, wherever they may be, have a blessed and joy filled Easter.
