An update from Fr Matthew

Dear parishioners and friends of our 3 Churches:

As I write, the Chancellor is speaking of being “shaken” by the present crisis – a good word. How strange it is for Andy and me to celebrate Mass without a congregation! How much some of you are telling me you are missing the Mass… the unique opportunity to be one with Jesus – and with one another. But please remember that our bonds go very deep, of faith, hope and love. The “Communion of Saints” is one of our greatest beliefs, perhaps sometimes forgotten, but very much to the fore at times such as this. Let us be one in spirit, then, in the Lord, and call on our patrons – our personal ones but also St Brigid and St Paul, great intercessors with Christ our King.

With thanks for your prayers and support – and all you do

Fr Matthew
