Gifts that God has given you

Dear friends and parishioners

It is not only the number of organists in our parishes that has been depleted recently. We need new volunteers in many aspects of parish life.

Please remember that through our Baptism, we all together are responsible for the life and ministry of the Church. So, what gifts has God given you that can be used for his glory and the good of his vineyard – it is your responsibility not just to receive in the Church, but to give… not just money but the gifts, interests and enthusiasm God has given you.

Mass restrictions

Dear friends and parishioners
This weekend we move into fewer restrictions for Mass, agreed by the 3 Churches. Our guiding principle is to ease distancing while respecting and facilitating those who wish to continue to do so. Please follow, as always, the directives of our stewards.
