Laudato Si Quotes on the Environment

 “What (we) need is an ecological conversion, whereby the effects of (our) encounter with Jesus Christ become evident in (our) relationship with the world around (us). Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience.” (Laudato Si, 217)


Sunday Mass Time - Change from Sunday 11 August 2024.

The Parish Pastoral Council meeting on 13 June reflected on the number (3) of Masses celebrated on Sunday mornings and on the availability of priests into the coming months. The members looked at the number of people attending each of the three Masses over recent months. They also recognise the need for priests to take their annual holidays, to go on retreat, and to recuperate, when necessary, from sickness and other health issues when such may arise from time to time.

The Council also considered the extreme difficulty, and at times the impossibility, in finding priests from outside the parish to cover the Masses when a priest of this parish is not available for one or another reason.

The Council for these reasons unanimously endorsed the decision to reduce the number of Masses on Sunday from 3 to 2, namely at 10.00 a.m. and 12.00 noon, to begin on Sunday 11 August 2024.

The vigil Mass on Saturday at 5.00p.m. will continue as usual.  People who have booked Mass intentions at the 9.00 a.m. and the 10.30 a.m. from Sunday 11 August and afterwards will be contacted and offered alternative times at the other Masses. The PPC very much regrets the change and hopes that there will not be too much disappointment. - PPC
