Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord

Parish Mission Statement

Our Parish seeks to live as a family – supporting one another, open to all comers, and building a community where each person feels wanted and cared for. To make this happen, we will work to grow in holiness through prayer and service and we will try to show God’s love in our daily lives.

Ceremonies are available on the parish webcam.

Vigil Mass Time from 30 April / 1st May 2022

Since most Covid restrictions have been removed it is now time for the parish to revert to one Vigil Mass on Saturdays. However, the earlier Vigil Mass

 (At 4.30 p.m.) has been so popular so it has been decided that from Saturday 30th April one Vigil Mass will be at 5.00 p.m.

Those who have arranged for announced Mass intentions at the former 6.00 p.m. Mass from 30th April will be contacted by the office and invited to transfer their intentions to the 5.00 p.m. or to any Mass time of their choice. Sunday Mass times remain the same 9am, 10.30am and 12 noon.
