The church will be open on Mondays to Saturdays for
12 noon Mass and remain open for personal prayer and reflection until 1.00pm. Apart from these times
the church will be closed. 

PLEASE NOTE THE UPDATED GUIDELINES

Face coverings in church are still encouraged even if they are not required by law; however, some people are exempt for medical or other reasons.  Social distancing is also still requested. We still need to be so careful!
For the immediate future, we will continue to keep every second bench roped off to maintain social distancing between your family bubbles and others. I can’t see this situation changing till after the summer, but I will keep the matter under review. The ‘one-way system’ in church is no longer required.

Please note that people attending places of worship are required to wear face coverings.

No Confessions this week

Baptisms & Weddings: by arrangement – no restriction on numbers attending but every second bench will continue to be roped off.

6th Annual International Music Festival

 

This year we had a change of date and time. The festival took place on Saturday 23rd November at 2.30pm. The Folk Group opened the festival with performances of 'Summertime' and 'Total Praise'.

This was followed by Nostro Coro singing arrangements of 'Kumbaya', 'Down to the River' and 'When the Saints go marching in'.

Next came the very energetic Filipino Choir singing 'Kay Saya ng Buhay Medley' and 'Kalesa'.

Then we heard the Filipino Youth Group with 'Let there be peace on Earth'

And next was the Small Youth Group singing 'Mary's Boy Child' and 'He lives in me.'

This was followed by the African Choir performing 'Ee Yesu Wango' and Ukuthula'.

Next were the Indian Community with 'Thee Pole Evanganame' and '10,000 reasons ( Bless the Lord )'

The finale was taken care of by the Youth Groups and included performances of 'He still loves me', 'Joyful, Joyful' and 'We are the World'. A superb event that yet again showcased some of the work that goes on in the parish and a true celebration of our different cultures.
