  • Throughout November Remember that St Brigid’s and St Paul’s churches are always open each day. People pop in to pray or just for peace.
  • Throughout November In each of our 3 Churches there will be a November Book of Remembrance. You are welcome to add the names of those who have been important to you. Regular Masses will be offered for those mentioned in these books.
We give them back to You, O Lord, who first gave them to us;
Yet as You did not lose them in the giving, so we do not lose them by their return... 
For what is yours is ours also, if we belong to You.
Love is undying, and life is unending,
And the boundary of this mortal life is but a horizon,
And the horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
Lift us up, strong Son of God, that we may see further.
