Day for Life Today Pentecost Sunday UK Rosary Relay Rally across Scotland, Wales, England.

The Scottish Bishops have given their blessing for this Pentecost Rosary relay Rally.

Pope Francis is encouraging Catholics to pray the Rosary in their family homes during the month of May, especially when the Pandemic is making us aware of the value of our families and making it possible for us to pray
together in lockdown at home.

Our Archdiocese has been assigned 1-2pm, please consider saying the Rosary during that hour. Collection: 


The Day for Life special collection  31st May. 

The theme this year is “Choose Life”.  During the coronavirus crisis calls from mothers-to-be are still being received so your donations will be well used by the Archdiocesan Pro-Life Office to help local mothers and children with their pregnancies.

You can donate online:

Fr Kevin will be offering daily Mass privately and all the Mass Intentions already received will be fulfilled.

You may still hand in intentions and Masses will be offered on or as near as possible to the date requested.  Just put them through the

presbytery door and they will be printed as usual in the newsletter.

Remember to pray – for all our sick, for those affected by coronavirus, for those who are alone and for our priests are who unable to minister to their parishioners at this time but who are praying for all.

Journey into Freedom continues – Easter to Pentecost

This retreat is a continuation of the Journey into Faith Lent Retreat based on the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius Loyola.
Then this retreat takes over until Pentecost.
