We are trying to compile a comprehensive list of all the sick and housebound in the Parish in order to ensure that they are visited on a regular basis. If you know of, or are currently visiting, any Catholic in the parish who is housebound can you please ensure that we have the name and address of that person. Also, if you know of any Catholic in the parish who is sick and housebound and who does notreceive regular visitations from the parish can you please (with their permission) let us know their contact details. The idea will be to set up regular monthly vitiations by the clergy to all those who are housebound in the parish. Thank you for your help with this.
At the Easter Vigil this year we will receive ten people into the Church: Rowena, Jolanda, Carmen, Timothy, Justin, Tom, Laura, Jonathan, Elizabeth and John. This is the end of a long journey of faith for them and I ask you to keep them all in your prayers this week as they prepare to make this important step in their lives. I encourage you also to try to attend the Easter Vigil which is a beautiful celebration
Remember that Friday is a day of fasting and abstinence which means that all Catholics are obliged to abstain from meat, and all adults between 16 and 65 are obliged to fast.
Remember that it is a Precept of the Church that all Catholics should go to confession at least once a year, at Easter or thereabouts.
