Welcome to warmer weather and the return of Mass and parish gatherings. Please pray the whole country goes to level 1 soon. By the grace of God it seems Covid 19 is coming back under control in time for the election.  There are plenty of resources about the referenda available on our website and other sources.

The reflection this month is about the End of Life Choice Bill.  We encourage you to share the information as widely as possible.  Every voice counts.

Covid 19 may have restricted our movements, but we know nothing can stop us bearing the presence of Christ to those around us everyday, in the spirit of Mary.
Blessings and prayer, Bev, Margaret  & Fr Chris

A Prayer for our Earth

All-powerful God, you are present in the whole universe and in the smallest of your creatures. You embrace with your tenderness all that exists. Pour out upon us the power of your love, that we may protect life and beauty. Fill us with peace, that we may live as brothers and sisters, harming no one. Amen. Pope Francis, Laudato Si.


Fr Michael Vincent Curtain SM. R.I.P. Fr Vince was 88, professed 1954, ordained 20/07/1958,  died 20/09/2020. May he rest in peace.
