Pentecost Novena which  focuses on Creation and the problems we are facing as a global community, based on the powerful invocation of the Holy Spirit,  

Send forth your Spirit O Lord and renew the face of the earth.

This week sees the start of 11 days of the ecumenical global prayer initiative They Kingdom Come for 2021, that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus. Christians from more than 170 countries and 65 denominations have taken part.

“May ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ be a prayer from our hearts that the Holy Spirit transforms us into servants of the word and servants of the created world made through the word Himself.”

World Communications Day      The Right Use of the Media prayer:

Father of light, from whom every good gift comes, send your Spirit into our lives with the power of a mighty wind, and by the flame of your wisdom open the hori­zons of our minds.

Loosen our tongues to sing your praise in words beyond the power of speech, for without your Spirit men and women could never raise their voice in words of peace or announce the truth that is Jesus the Lord                                               Roman Missal

We are adopting the technology already in place in many Catholic parishes around the country.

We now have the facility for you to make contributions to the Parish directly from here


In-line with our mission, 5% of all Dona’s profits are given to church charities.


As you will be aware the collections have dropped by approx. £500 per week due to the low Mass attendance. Fortunately a number of parishioners make their donation by Standing Order each month from their banks which means we are receiving £430 per week from them and this has proved essential in keeping a regular flow of income but not sufficient to meet our budget commitments

Would you consider setting up a Standing Order on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis with your bank in favour of the Parish – bank details are Sort code:-18-17;     Account number: 17559642

This can be done online send your details to the parish office but also a form can be sent to you from the parish office, please phone with your details which can be left on the answering machine if no one is available. If you pay income tax you can gift aid your donation which adds another 25% on top of your gift.                                                                                                      Thank you. Fr Tom
