Sick and Housebound: For all those sick and home bound and who cannot get to mass on Saturday/Sunday, We are hoping to put in place a service where holy communion will be brought to you after mass at the weekends. Anyone interested in receiving holy communion please give your names to any sacristans. This service will not be replacing the first Friday calls, it will be additional call, and you will be getting benefit of receiving the blessed sacrament.
