To protect all people, the church is closed until further notice. We continue to pray privately, in our homes and online in union with the church worldwide.
The early church used to meet in people’s houses. Even they however could invite their neighbours and friends. In order to protect our neighbours and friends we are asked to obey the regulations issued by the government. Unlike the early church however we can connect to others through our phones, TV’s and other electronic devices. Please use these means to ensure that everyone is looked after physically, socially and spiritually during this time, observing strict social distancing.
There are many resources on the parish website to help you to pray at home especially on a Sunday. It takes time to establish a rhythm of prayer, so be gentle with yourselves and pray as you can, not as you can’t.
Jesus taught us to keep our prayers simple and so he gave us the Our Father, which is complemented by the Hail Mary. Like me I am sure you find yourselves especially, giving thanks to God for all those, who among other things, currently provide our food, keep the light, heat and water operating, and work in our hospitals and care homes.
I will continue to say mass each day privately in the church. When I first did so, I realized that there is no light setting for the sanctuary alone. This reminds me of your presence around the parish and that we continue to be united in prayer.
Please look on the Homily section each week for a sermon by Fr Robin or Fr Mark. Please also look at the Newsletter to stay in touch and read the reflections on the Sunday Readings on the front page.
May God bless you in the name of the Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.
