Covid Mass restrictions of 50.  In order to allow people to attend an anniversary Mass for their loved ones whilst church numbers are restricted, we are reverting to having only one intention per Mass. We know this may cause some disappointment and hope you will understand the need to implement this measure.

May the Lord reward you for your goodness and kindness. We will remember you at the Communion Masses.
