 Dear Parishioners,

Two weeks ago nobody is their wildest dreams could have imagined with what a catastrophic effect the Corona Virus would have struck our Parish, our country and our world. We are living in what many have called unprecedented times. We are at war with an invisible enemy.

As people of faith we are called to face the fears of this moment with courage not our own and with a generous heart. God is with his people in good times and in bad. Like believers in every age we say “If I should walk in the Valley of darkness, no evil would I fear for You are there”.

In an hour of trial Jesus calls on us his followers to serve the common good, by taking responsibility for each other and to prioritise the most vulnerable in our Community, ahead of our individual wants and aspirations. At this time, our first concern has to the for the elderly, the ill and those with underlying medical conditions.

It is for this reason that the celebration of Mass in our Church has been suspended and the Church itself is closed until further notice.

I encourage you to pray at home each day. To remember all who have died as a result of the virus, those who are in mourning for lost loved ones, those suffering from the virus and especially the wonderful health workers who risk their own health and lives in tending to others. Please add the Memorare to your prayers.

Use your phone each day to keep in contact with people you know, especially those elderly living alone – these are very difficult times for them.

Have courage. Keep the Faith. Hopefully we will return to our Church for a Mass of Thanksgiving when these days of darkness and fear have passed.

God bless and keep you all safe and healthy,

Fr. Paul

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
