CHAPLETS OF THE DIVINE MERCY.
A beautiful, prayerful, sung devotion held in our Church on the second Wednesday of each month. The next devotion will be held on Wednesday 8th July 2020 commencing at 7.30 pm.
If you have not attended previously, why don’t you come along and participate in this uplifting experience? All are welcome.
As a result of COVID-19 the RCIA Sacramental Programme did not occur at Easter Time. The Sacraments will now be received by our Elect at the 6.30 pm Mass on Saturday 25th July 2020. If this is your Mass of choice, please be aware that this will be a somewhat longer ceremony than the normal Saturday Evening Mass.
Due to the alterations to our 2019/20 Programme and the consequent time limitations our next RCIA Course will commence with an Enquiry Night on 6th May, 2021.
If for a particular reason you wish to be received into the Church before this date please contact one of our Priests or the Church Office and we will endeavour to accommodate you.

The receiving of the Sacrament will take place at the regular Saturday 6.30pm Mass and following Sunday 11am and 6pm evening Masses.
Due to some restrictions still in place, the number of communicants is limited to 15 per Mass. However, there is no restrictions on the amount of guests each family has. It will be strictly on a “First in best dressed” system. Children from Yidarra school have been allocated the 3 Masses on the weekend of the 8th /9th August with limited spaces on the weekend of the 16th August 6.00pm Mass. And children from the Parish have been allocated the 3 Masses on the weekend of the 15th /16th August.
