WORLD MISSION SUNDAY.  There will be a second collection today  at all Masses.  Our prayers and donations mean that we share in the mission of Jesus by supporting the thousands of missionaries who put their lives at the service of God’s people. The theme for this year’s World Mission Sunday is ’Faith changes everything’. The Year of Faith encourages us to reflect on the importance of our own faith and how we can share it. For more information please visit


MASS LINK.  The Mass Link enables house bound Parishioners to participate and celebrate Sunday evening Mass via a skype connection direct to their homes. This is an invaluable service which really makes a difference to the lives of those who are unable to attend Church in person. By moving to the Skype service, costs have been reduced by 75%. However, there is still a cost associated to this project and we rely upon the generous contributions of fellow Parishioners to keep it running. Therefore, if you would like to make a donation, please use an envelope and return to the church, either in the collection plate or to the Presbytery. Please be sure to complete the Gift Aid details on the front of the envelope, so that the Parish can reclaim tax back from the Government. If you know someone who would like to take part in the Sunday evening service via the Mass Link service, then please pass their name and telephone number to Father John.
