We are pleased to announce that, in spite of bad weather, we had record numbers at the Annual Diocesan Grandparents Pilgrimage last Wednesday with Bishop Richard. There were about 100 communicants at Mass – made up of grandparents from across the diocese, together with our own parishioners. Many thanks to all who helped.

We are celebrating our ‘Feast of Title’ at a Mass of Our Lady of Consolation at the Shrine on Thursday 20th at 09.30am.

Preparing to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation (Confession) and the Eucharist for the first time can be one of the most important and memorable experiences parents share with their children. This Sunday (19th May), we shall all – as our Eucharistic Community – be welcoming Emily Kissane into full Communion with The Church when she receives her First Holy Communion at the 10.30 Mass.
