Adam here, I hope that you all had as nice Christmas and New Year celebrations as possible.

You are lucky to have snow where you all are. I didn't have a thing apart from the cold.

Firstly, the website is updated with the weekly newsletter and Fr. Anton's weekly column. The parish blog has a new look following inspiration over the holiday. The Christmas Carol-A-Day continues until January 5th. I hope you have enjoyed the contribution from one of the parishioners.

Secondly, the Live Streaming has been well recieved. The three Christmas Masses will remain on the website until the end of the Christmas period. 

Thirdly, there was a generous response to the Foodbank appeal with almost 200 kilograms of food and essentials gathered. Golly! I am told there were a group of carol singers present add to cheer the atmosphere around the collection.

And finally, Wednesday January 6th, is the Feast of the Epiphany when the Three Wise Men come to visit Jesus with gifts of gold and frankincense and myrrh.

  • "The gift of gold for The King of Kings."
  • "The gift of frankincense for the Priest of Priests."
  • "The gift of myrrh to honour thy sacrifice."

The Masses for the Epiphany are 10:00am and 7:00pm

Booking your place for by telephone to give everyone a reasonable chance of attending. Leave a message. Pease note until you receive a reply, we cannot guarantee a place.
