Letters from Fr John

1 November

Dear Parishioners of Our Lady’s, St Anne’s and St Jerome’s.

At the public Masses this weekend, I spoke of the approaching national lockdown and the suspension of all Acts of Public Worship. The closure of our churches, the second closure in a year, is hard to take and very demoralising. However, our prayer  is that the lockdown will end at the beginning of December, and we can all begin our Advent preparation for Christmas.

Today, the Feast of All Saints, we have been reflecting on the Saints as ‘light bearers’. The people with whom we live and work need the light of Christ more than ever; a light that comforts, guides and encourages. These days certainly seem dark, but the Lord promised to be with us always. 

Please keep in touch in the days ahead; our Website, Facebook page and e mails are regularly updated with the latest information. If you need to get in touch with us at any time, you can find our contact details on our Website and Facebook page.

God bless you all,

Father John
