Keeping in Contact

You may not be able to pick up a copy of the weekly paper newsletter but the latest information is regularly posted here on the parish website.

We are sending a weekly  “E-Bulletin” to each home over the coming weeks.  If you don’t see one, please check your “SPAM” folder. and then make us a “Safe Sender”.

At this time it is particularly important to stay in contact with each other – so if you haven’t done so already, please give us your email address.

Just drop an email to our webmaster.

COVID-19/Coronavirus -Local Help & Support

We are conscious that as a result of the measures to contain the spread of the Coronavirus, some individuals, couples or families may

  • be burdened by fears about jobs, finance or the wellbeing of loved ones;
  • experience a sense of isolation in the coming weeks;
  • need practical help;
  • welcome spiritual support.

Do you need a Helping Hand?

  • arranging an interview with an appropriate professional;

  • assistance with a pet animal;
  • or anything else that is important to you.
