HOLY COMMUNION AT HOME

 Our Eucharistic Ministers are now able to take Holy Communion once more to the sick and housebound at home (though not yet to those in nursing homes). It’s possible now that some who used to attend Mass regularly before the pandemic may not now feel fit enough to return. Would you like Holy Communion to be brought to you at home? Please contact Fr. Dever (224 1498) or the Parish Office (248 8836).

 

STATIONS OF THE CROSS DURING LENT AT ST. MARY’S

If you are willing to lead the stations on one of the Sundays at 6pm, please let Fr. Dever know. There are many versions that can be used and are available from church.

 

SYNOD MEETING – THURSDAY 24th FEBRUARY AT 7PM IN ST. MARY’S PRESBYTERY MEETING ROOM

Pope Francis has asked every parish in every diocese across the world to help him. He wants us to spend some time listening to each other in our parishes, and to those outside our churches, whether it is those who have drifted away from Mass or have been hurt by the Church, and to those on the margins of society. He wants us to ask ourselves what the Holy Spirit wants our Church to be in the years to come. Please come along to this meeting next Thursday evening to share your thoughts with one another.
