From this weeks newsletter… Dear Parishioners
This weekend we have our Service of Anointing for the Sick and Housebound. We will have a service with Benediction and the Sacrament of the Sick beginning at 3.00pm, followed by a Christmas Tea. I know that people really appreciate the opportunity to come and receive this blessing and to meet with people over tea. Please encourage people to come along to this. If anyone needs a lift, please let us know. Thanks for supporting the Blessing of the Crib which was well attended. There are a few “Walk with Me” books still available at the back of the Church. Please try to support some of the Parish activities for Advent. There was a good turnout for the 7.00am Mass on Thursday and this will continue through Advent………. link to full Newsletter. Very Rev Canon Tom Farrell, Parish Priest.
