Thought for the Week.

“I will not leave you desolate; I will come to you…” (Jn. 14:18)
It shouldn’t surprise us if our feelings of helplessness and frustration in these months of lockdown are now beginning to look like an endless dark night and the absence of God. Beneath this dark lining of the present circumstances we all find ourselves in, we can still find gems for spiritual growth and a flourishing intimate encounter with the Lord who is never absent, but always present to us

He has risen as he said. alleluia, alleluia. Happy Easter.


Following the Cardinal’s directive after the PM’s statement on Monday 23rd March 2020, the church will remain closed till further notice. All Masses and parish events have been suspended till further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please see our latest newsletter  and news section for more information and updates.
Be assured of the prayers of Fr Derek, Fr Joseph and Deacon Neville for you at this challenging time and if you need to contact us, please do not hesitate to do on the phone or via email.
