Special Intention (Shared)
Adoration Apostolate: On Tuesdays—Adoration day in the Parish, people come before the Lord with different emotions. Some find it a joy, to take a few moments away from the busy world, to reflect and spend some time with Jesus’ presence; and gain the strength to cope with what life can throw at us.
Sanctuary Candle: Each week two candles are lit at either side of the Tabernacle for the intentions of the donors. Anyone wishing to contribute or who would like to have a candle lighting for the week, contact Phylis Brett, Sacristy or Parish Office.
2nd Collection on St Patrick’s Day : will be taken up for Emigrants.
