Prayer of St John Henry Newman
May the Lord support us all the day long, till the shadows lengthen and the
evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over 
and our work is done. Then in His love and mercy may he give us and all our
beloved a safe lodging, a holy rest and peace at the last. Amen.

 

LIVING WITH COVID-19 - LEVEL 5

“Level 5” (of the Plan for Living with COVID-19) means public worship is banned so “Religious services will move online.” Weddings and funerals are still allowed, with a limit of 25 participants, and churches may remain open for private prayer. These restrictions are due to remain in place until 1st. Dec. 2020 at the earliest.

NOVEMBER MONTH OF REMEMBERING - FEAST OF ALL SOULS

Monday 2nd November is the feast of All Souls. Mass Times: 7.45am, 10.00am. All Masses on Monday 2nd, Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th and all First Friday Masses will be offered for Altar List of the Dead.  Dead lists are available in the Church.  Please fill one up, if you would like to do so and drop into the Parish centre.

MASS FOR THE BEREAVED

The 10.00am Mass on Sunday 8th November will be for all families in our Parish who have lost a loved one during the year. This can be viewed on our webcam.

It is the teaching of the Church and the practise of our ancestors to remember the dead during this month.

Birth, growth and death are of the natural order.  Each of us will die some day as it is part of God’s plan for us.  Let us follow God’s command and pray for the souls of the dead who have gone before us – our relatives, neighbours, ancestors and all the holy souls.  May God increase their glory, ease their pain and grant them remission of their sins.

We can also visit a church or cemetery during the month.

It is comforting to remember that our relatives are not gone from us but before us and one day we will be with them in Paradise.

Living Slow: John O Donohue

This is the time to be slow,
Lie low to the wall
Until the bitter weather passes.

Try, as best you can, not to let
The wire brush of doubt
Scrape from your heart
All sense of yourself
And your hesitant light.

If you remain generous,
Time will come good;
And you will find your feet
Again on fresh pastures of promise,
Where the air will be kind
And blushed with beginning.
