We are delighted that our new parish priest Fr Tony THOMAS, is with us as he takes up his role as our new parish priest. We wish Fr Tony every joy and blessing as he comes to serve us as our shepherd in the person of Jesus, here at the Five Precious Wounds.

We also keep Fr. Antonio in our prayers as he takes up his new role in the Diocesan Seminary, Allen Hall.

First Holy Communion Classes

If your child is currently in years 2, 3, 4 and above, please take an application form today. If your child was enrolled in 2019 and missed this year’s First Holy Communions, please make sure to enrol your child again. Classes will begin in September.

Confirmation Classes

If your child is currently in school years, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 etc. Please take and fill in an application form today, even if your child was already part of the classes before “lock-down,” so that we may know if you still wish your child to receive this important sacrament.

Altar Servers

We are once again able to recruit new and old servers for the Mass. If you would like your child to serve at the Mass, please give your child’s details to Deacon Andrew after Mass. We expect a high standard from our servers. Children must wear black shoes and are expected to arrive 30 minutes before Mass begins to go through training each Sunday.

Red Boxes

It is now time to empty your Red Box. Please bring your box to the Church and give it to Eileen O’Brien, or the Parish Priest or Deacon. Thank you.
