MASS INTENTIONS: We are very fortunate in this parish to have Mass offered every day, sometimes twice a day. If you would like Mass to be offered for your intentions, for the intentions of your loved ones or departed relatives, please use the Mass Intention envelopes that are available from the back of church and post through the Presbytery Letter Box. It is appropriate to include a donation to the priest, this is known as a Mass Stipend. Thank you.
