Abstinence from meat is to be observed by all Catholics from 14 years old and older on all Fridays of Lent. This obligation prohibits the eating of meat, but not eggs.

Fasting means limiting oneself to one full meal on a given fast day.

When fasting a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are equally binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 years onwards.

We wish you all a blessed and Graceful Lenten Season.

Breakfast after Mass. Every Sunday after Mass, there is a breakfast of sausage or bacon on toast, tea & coffee in the Hall. Everyone is welcome.


There is some information about Fr Kris’s order in the porch please feel free to take a leaflet to learn more about his order.


If anyone in our Parish is a joiner or handyperson and could make a cupboard in the sacristy, please will you speak to Fr Kris
