Supporting Your Parish
You have asked us how you can continue giving to your parish during the pandemic. Parishes and charities still greatly need your support, even more so without their weekly congregations and visitors.
We do though recognise that many parishioners may be struggling financially, and there is no expectation to give where you are unable to do so. Click on the link below

Prayers for the sick
Ministry of the Sick & Housebound
While the Parish tries to be vigilant, it is the sick or housebound person, or someone close, who should alert the Church and ask for care. The care comes in many ways. We pray for the sick and housebound every weekend. Parishioners will bring them Holy Communion and the Priest anoints them and brings them healing and absolution in the Sacrament of the Sick. However, to do this we must know that someone is sick or housebound.
If you have family, a friend or neighbour who requires this care then please, with their permission, complete the form on the attached leaflet and return to Father Michael Bonaccorsi
New to the Parish
We welcome new Parishioners.
