See the calendar on the right hand side for times of mass during the week.
This Sunday we celebrate the Solemnity of All Saints, transferred from Monday 1st of November. This ancient festival is a celebration of all the holy ones, known and unknown, who worship God constantly in Heaven. We ask for their prayers and that we will one day share in the praise and peace which they now enjoy. You can read the scriptures for this week here.
To help us get used to singing the responses at Mass again, Conor, our director of music will be holding a short practice after coffee this Sunday. All very welcome.
Tuesday November 2nd is All Souls day when we pray for all who have died.
