Parish Life 22 August 2021

Dear Parishioners,

The special feast of Our Lady’s Assumption happened to fall on Sunday last week. So the festival was to be celebrated in each of our churches at Sunday Mass. These plans were quickly changed on Saturday afternoon with the announcement of the lockdown. On Sunday morning I offered Mass in the church alone for all the faithful in the parish. Please be assured in these strange times that you are remembered in my prayers on behalf of the parish. Fr Nicolas Maurice
