Palm Sunday of The Passion of the Lord: Year A
In what is going to be the most extraordinary Holy Week and Easter celebration, I ask that we make this journey together as a diocesan and parish family. It will be a very different journey than usual but, this year, sharing in Our Lord’s Passion, Death through to his Resurrection will bring with it a special poignancy.
Keeping you all in prayers.
Please keep me in yours.
Palm Sunday: Mass at 10 am
Mon, Tues, Wed: Mass at 7 am
Holy Thursday: Mass of the Lord’s Supper 7 pm

Sacrament of Penance:
The Bishops of England and Wales have dispensed all Catholics from Easter duties for the year 2020. It is extremely difficult to celebrate the Sacrament of Penance, as well as receive Holy Communion. They invite us to make a sincere Act of Contrition before God and open our hearts to his tender mercy.
Please find under 'newsletters' a 'Message for the beginning of Holy Week' from Bishop Mark O'Toole.
