Of your charity, pray for the souls of Edward Bell (Hawthornhill Road), Andy McCartney (Westbridgend), Kathleen Docherty (Lomond Court) and Jim O'Malley (Brucehill) who have died in recent days.


If you wish deceased relatives and friends to be remembered at Mass during November, then please put a list (with any Mass offerings) in the box provided in the church. We will publish a list, shortly, of all parishioners who died in the past 12 months, and whose names will be written in the Book of Remembrance.


Young people, now in First Year of High School, who were due to be Confirmed last June, are being prepared for the Sacrament which we will celebrate in St Michael's on Sundays 22nd and 29th November. If you wish to be included but have not informed Fr Toal, please do so.


Points to Ponder
As long as this pandemic continues, the obligation to attend Sunday Mass is suspended - although we do not want to encourage the mindset that presence at Mass is not important.
Please do not attend if you have any viral symptoms.
If you wish to come to Mass and are flexible about time, then please opt for 5:30pm (Vigil) or 11am - 50 can be accommodated in the church and 40 in the hall.

Prayer amid pandemic

Almighty and eternal God,
our refuge in every danger,
to whom we turn in our distress;
in faith we pray
look with compassion on the afflicted,
grant eternal rest to the dead, comfort to mourners,
healing to the sick, peace to the dying,
strength to healthcare workers, wisdom to our leaders
and the courage to reach out to all in love,
so that together we may give glory to your holy name.
Through Christ, our Lord.
