CORONA VIRUS UPDATE: The Sunday Refreshments are suspended until further notice
The complete closure of all places of worship
As a sad but necessary consequence we must, from Tuesday 24.03.2020, ensure that the doors of all churches and chapels in the Archdiocese are closed to the public and that they remain permanently locked until these restrictions are lifted. In this way we shall continue to play our part within every parish in fighting the Coronavirus and to show our solidarity with all those who are striving to overcome the current pandemic.
The Prime Minister also stated that all social events, including weddings, baptisms and other ceremonies, but excluding funerals, must henceforth cease.
Please continue to keep in your prayers all those working in the NHS and all those who are ill because of the Coronavirus
For more information please see our weekly newsletter.

Visitors and new Parishioners are always welcome and we look forward to seeing you in our Church.
