Confirmation 2021

We are presently planning our Confirmation Programme for those who should have been confirmed last year, and those who would like to be confirmed this year – that is current years 8 and 9.

If this is you, please download, save and complete this Microsoft Word form and then email your completed form to Ansti Corellis at anstic2018@yahoo.com so we can contact you.

If you are unable to download and edit the above Word form, you can send an email to Ansti with the details as shown in this pdf version of the form (non-editable).

The Archbishop has delegated Confirmation for this year to parish priests, so we will be able to select our own date. We are also looking at the practicalities of a possible celebration in each of our churches. Further information can be obtained from Canon Matthew. We are always looking for people to help run the course. If you think you could help in this important stage of our young people’s formation then please let Canon Matthew know.

The Ascension

Dear friends and parishioners

This Thursday the Church remembers the Ascension of Our Lord into heaven. The obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holidays is still lifted, and attendance on a day other than Sunday is seen as equivalent. In a similar way, please note that the Mass on Wednesday at St Paul’s will also be a Mass for the Ascension.

Fr Matthew

Our Lady

Our Lady

Dear friends and parishioners

We are already at the month of May the month of Our Lady, and maybe wondering where 2021 has gone. Let’s use this month to help us renew our devotion to Mary. We call her Mother of the Church, so let’s commend ourselves, our families and loved ones, our parishes and our world to her maternal protection.

Fr Matthew
