The website mass-time .com is still live until Tuesday evening @ 9.00.

Everyone who has registered their intention will be informed by Thursday which mass  is available for them to attend. The number of masses and their times will be determined by how many are on the list by Tuesday evening. We may not be able to give everyone their preferred option, but we will do our best.

For others who wish to log on after next weekend the site will take names and other details from Sunday morning to Tuesday evening each week..  By knowing how many intend to come to a particular mass means that we can ensure that our chapel is properly spaced out and that people feel comfortable and secure.

It is great to see the turn out for daily mass.. and for the week ahead mass will be at 9.30 am Monday to Friday.

On Monday evening we have a meeting of all who have volunteered to help with stewarding, car parking, and cleaning of seats for the Sunday masses. The meeting will be here tomorrow evening @ 7.30pm here in the chapel. Even if you have not indicated that you wish to help please still feel free to come along..most welcome


Congratulations to the children of the parish who received the sacrament of Confirmation in the past two days. Our thanks to the Staff of the schools and to our parents for getting everything in place at such short notice.. To others who helped around the chapel over the days and making sure that the place was cleaned and ready for the next event..

Our thanks to all who dropped in their envelopes over the past couple of weeks . We have received a total of £3,710 plus a donation of £1,000.

As you will know, our Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes was scheduled to take place from 2 – 7 July.  Many people from  our parishes throughout the diocesewould have been due to travel.


In our masses and prayers over the coming days we  remember  all who would have been participating in the pilgrimage this year, especially the sick.  Please God, we will be able to travel next year. Pilgrimage would have gone last Thursday until next Tuesday


To honour the occasion, Bishop Donal McKeown is hosting a Virtual Lourdes Pilgrimage from St Eugene’s Cathedral for the six days, from 2 – 7th

Full details of the programme, which will be live-streamed from St Eugene’s Cathedral, will be posted on the Diocesan Facebook Page and Website.


Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.

St Bernadette, pray for us.



BAPTISMS: If you wish to book a Baptism, please get in touch by email or phone. A number of parents have been asking about this over recent weeks.  All ceremonies will be performed individually and I will be flexible about when they will be carried out. I will do my best to accommodate everyone’s circumstances as best I can. In planning please note it will be  a very limited number present. Baby, parents,  GodParents  and any other children in the family only.
