Ash Wednesday

We will be able to open the church for congregational mass on Ash Wednedsay 17th Feb at 11am.


Ashes will be administered by sprinkling on the head rather than with the thumb. Fr. Jim says, if you do not want to come to Mass but would like to receive the Ashes, he will be available for the rest of the day till early evening to give them to you if you come to the Presbytery door.


We will then be opening at the weekend for mass from Saturday 20th Feb at 4pm and from Sunday 21st Feb at 11am.


For everyones' greater protection, Fr. Jim now gives out Holy Communion under a screen: you need only to put your hands under this screen to receive Holy Communion.

To ensure the best Covid -19 safely measure are applied for everyones' protection, you will have to book in for the various Masses as before: the best way is to email Dcn John on or text/call John (his number is on the Bulletin accessible via the Parish website:


Fr. Jim has asked that we limit the congregation to one family per pew, which may mean one person on their own or people from the same household in the same pew.


As ever, stewards are needed to ensure Covid-19 safety precautions: if you are able to assist please contact Dcn John.


CAFOD's Lenten Family Fast Day is this Friday 19th Feb with, in normal times, the collection being made at the Masses the following Sunday.


Please remember those going hungry, particualrly due to Covid-19, and send your donation using the link  to the right.
