Thank you to all those parents who attended the meeting on Monday 11th October. It was lovely to see such a good turnout.

Classes will be once a fortnight up until Christmas. Just to remind you that your child must be in Year 3 or above to join the Holy Communion programme this year. Please bring your Registration Form and a copy of the Baptismal Certificate along to the first session. Many thanks, Maria Davies

For adults wishing to know more about the Catholic faith, a new programme is about to commence. Registration is now taking place. Registration forms are available in the porch. Please take one, complete it, and return it to the parish office.
NB: This very informative Programme is also open to anyone wanting to learn more about their faith.
There are a lot of requests for weekend Mass Intentions. NB Such requests are processed on a “first come, first served” basis. However, where an Intention is unable to be scheduled on the date requested, it will be scheduled for the nearest available date even though that might not necessarily be on a weekend.
Please kindly note the following facts:
(i) The Sacrifice of Mass is not bound by time and/or space:
(ii) Whilst it is a good idea to be present at the Mass you have requested for a family member/friend, if you are unable to be present, neither the efficacy of the Sacrifice nor the salutary effects of the Mass are diminished in any way.
Covid-19 Restrictions - A reminder
We must continue to sign-in; keep to the one-way system; and maintain social distancing (including no congregating in the aisles and porch areas). Congregational singing is allowed, but face coverings must remain in place. NB: The wearing of masks indoors in public spaces is a legal requirement and not optional - unless you are exempt for medical reasons.
Bishop Tom’s Golden Jubilee Mass
We will be hosting Bishop Tom’s Golden Jubilee Anniversary Mass here in the cathedral on 16th December at 11:30 a.m. Apart from the Cathedral Stewards and Volunteers, if there is anyone else who would like to attend, please kindly inform Canon Benedict. We have tickets for eight parishioners
Appeal to Parents of Babies and Young Children
People trying to follow the Mass on the live-stream are complaining that the Priest’s voice is frequently “drowned out” by the sound of noisy children, to the point that they can’t follow the Mass. Please, I appeal to you . . . when your child creates a disturbance and can’t be quietened, always take them into the porch. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
