We would not be able to continue our work and mission, bringing people closer to Jesus Christ through His Church, without the many people who give their time, talents and financial contributions so generously to support our parish, clergy and Church.
The unprecedented times we are currently going through have brought new challenges for us all. Churches have had to close, and now thankfully re-open but with limited capacity. Like many, our parish has felt the pastoral and financial effects of the COVID19 pandemic.
Our Lord is always here for us all, and we will endeavour to always be there for you through these challenging times. If you feel able, please give generously to support our parish and mission.
