In response to the Coronavirus pandemic and the guidance from the Bishops Conference the Church is only open for limited purposes. Fr Anthony will continue to say private Mass, with the Intentions indicated in the weekly newsletter and all are invited to join spiritually, watching its live streaming; following its prayers at home; making an act of spiritual communion. We are also encouraged to care for each other by being attentive to the needs of our neighbour, especially the elderly and vulnerable; contributing to our local food banks; volunteering for charitable initiatives and organisations; simply keeping in touch by all the means open to us.
