My dear parishioners,

 Still strange times and we seek God’s powerful presence in the midst of this pandemic.  It will pass.  As we are not allowed public Masses, I will continue to have Mass privately according to the Station Areas Rota in this newsletter and any special or anniversary intentions that you need.

 I am drawing your intention to the Online Diocesan Mission (first ever).  You have to register to get access and the back page of this newsletter has all the information.  There are some great speakers each day and meditation and some prayer as you see.  Hopefully the younger generation will help the elderly in setting it up.

 May the Lord give you strength and endurance and good health.

Fr Tom

We sincerely thank all our parishioners who have been so generous in handing in their Fund envelopes (and dues), even when the churches were closed.  Thanks for your commitment to your parish that enables us to keep paying the bills. We also thank all those who have handed in Fund envelopes this new year 2021. The amount received last week was €300.
