Come together with the global Ignatian Family for a half-hour online Worldwide Prayer Vigil on the eve of Pentecost.

All you are asked to bring is an open heart, your prayer intentions, and a candle to light and share with the world.

Happy Mother's Day 2020

Today we celebrate Mother's Day. Each year our liturgies would include the distribution of beautiful flowers (often chrysanthemums) to the women in the congregation or to be passed on to them by their families and friends present at Mass. This year, although we are unable to mark this day with you in person, we can still offer a prayer and thank God for our mums, mums-to-be, grand and great-grand mums and for all those women who have been spiritual mothers to us and others. We invite you to share a prayer for the inspirational woman or women in your life on our Mother's Day Facebook post.

God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7)

Many people have been enquiring about how they can contribute financially to the parish while all places of worship are closed as part of the government restrictions in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.
