First Friday Visits to the Housebound
Holy Communion is brought to our ill or housebound parishioners normally on the First Friday of every month.
The Monday Evening Rosary
The Monday rosary takes place in the church every Monday evening at 6pm. Its main intention is to pray for the return to faith and practice of our children and grandchildren, something we’re all so conscious of nowadays. We also pray for other special intentions, and everyone is most welcome to send in their requests. Please join us! The time may be inconvenient for you, but isn’t that a small sacrifice to pay for such a vital intention?

Song of the Week
A Reflection on Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
“Nowhere on earth are you more welcome,
nowhere on earth are you more loved than by Jesus,
living and truly present in the most Blessed Sacrament.
The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament,
is the best time you will spend on earth.
Each moment that you spend with Jesus,
will deepen your union with Him
and will make your soul everlastingly
more glorious and beautiful in heaven,
and will help bring about an everlasting peace on earth”
Saint Teresa of Calcutta (Mother Teresa)
