Parish Priest Fr James Edward Caulfield

Public Worship

To ensure that we comply with the CV 19 restrictions and ensure peoples safety certain protocols must be adopted. The first is that i am introducing a booking system. People may apply for a place but the final allocation will be made by the Parish Priest and a list produced for each of the masses. If you not on the list you will not be permitted to enter the church.

Booking form attached below..

Please note that unless you book you will not be allocated a place. The booking form is an application form and not a guarantee of a place. You will be notified of the allocations and a list will be kept by the stewards. It is unfortunate that the church can not accommodate everyone but the plan is to maximise the attendance at the weekday Masses as well to try and ensure that people are able to receive Holy Communion once a week, even if it is on a weekday. The obligatin to attend Mass on Sundays is suspended

If your name is not in the list you will not be admitted, Please do not think you can charm or beguile the stewards.
Claiming you sent a form but it was lost will not be accepted as an excuse. the rule is very simple.

If you are not on the list you will not be admitted.

Parish Update

Over the coming few weeks several projects will be taking place within the church. Much good work has already been done in preparation by a team of parish volunteers. The work includes the replacement of the spiral staircase with a safer means of access to the upper room; the reopening of the confessional external door; the sanding and resurfacing of the floor and the replacement of all high level light bulbs.

When this work is complete the church will be given a high level clean.

Weekday masses will vary but as a guide.

Monday 10:00

Tuesday 10:00

Wednesday 18:00

Thursday no Mass

Friday 12:15

No Mass on Saturday Morning.

Daily Masses will be advertised on the parish webpage here and on facebook.

I shall also set up a live streaming link for the Blessed Sacrament so that people may be assisted in their private prayer at home. The parish Memorial Garden is also available for private prayer.

The hope is that we will be able to have public worship in the church by Sunday 26th of July.
In order to ensure that this is done we will also need to make some other preparations such as the employment of a team of stewards and the devising of a booking system for the Masses. I shall give further details of this in a letter which au hope to send out on Friday.
This letter will be published on the parish website and sent electronically to all on the parish email list. If you have not been receiving a copy of the Sunday hymn sheet via email it is because we do not have your email address. If you could send an updated email to me then I will amend the parish email list. If you are in contact with any other parishioners, who are not on facebook, please ask them to send their email address to me.
For anyone who has not got an email we will send a copy of the letter via the post. Again I would ask that you ensure that any parishioners with whom you have contact update their postal address by sending it to me at the Rectory.
My email is

please do not send me messages over facebook or the facebook messaging app because it is insecure.

Many thanks for your patience. Good work is being done and I hope we will be able to share in communion together soon.

Spiritual Communion – Prayer of St Alphonsus

My Jesus,
I believe that you are present in this Holy Sacrament of the altar.
I love you above all things
and I passionately desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,
come spiritually into my soul so that I may unite myself wholly to you
now and forever.

Recorded Programmes.
The Angelus Promise is currently available as a recording as are all the Masses said so far.
Over the coming days I shall add Recordings of the Rosary, The Stations of the Cross and a penitential meditation/examination of conscience.

The Ministry of the Teacup

Welcome, Whether your an old stalwart; new to the area or have been away from the Catholic Church for some time please be assured that you will find a warm welcome. Introduce yourself,, or at least don't dash off after the Mass and let us get to know you. You may have skills or talents to offer and we will be happy to make use of them. The most important and often over looked skill is 'The Ministry of the Teacup'. Take the weight of your feet and sit and chat with folk and share a mug of tea, or coffee. Share the burdens and ideas if how ti cope with the vagaries of life in a warm and confidential environment. Loneliness is a common state for many but here in the parish you will always find a listening ear and friendly folk to give you a hand.

After the 10.15 am Sunday Mass you are most welcome to join us in the Rosmini Centre next to the Church for refreshments and a chance to meet and share in the Ministry of the Teacup.
