Fr Frank writes:


As I write this we still do not know when we will come out of lockdown.  An announcement will be made the Government on 14th June. If any changes affecting church practices arise from this, I will communicate them as soon as possible.  Meanwhile, nothing changes:  sanitiser, masks, distancing, and fresh air are still in place.

Today we celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi (The Body and Blood of Christ). We rejoice always, but especially so on this day, that Christ comes to us in the Blessed Sacrament of Holy Communion.


May the Christ who loves us and feeds us bless you today and always.
