After weekday Mass (in library room) or on request.
Please note: 
  • The obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains suspended;
  • Numbers within the church are restricted; so, try to avoid turning up at the last minute!
  • Everybody must sanitise their hands on entry - use main door (not side);
  • Unless exempted, face covering should be worn;
  • Please follow passkeepers for seating - filling from front and working backwards;
  • Once in the pew, do not wander off (conversations can wait for outside);
  • You will be asked to fill in a slip with contact details for NHS tracing purposes;
  • Offertory collection will be as you leave the church after Mass.



For the time being, there will continue to be no public access to Mass at the monastery. Requests for prayers can be made by phone or email.


A huge 'thank you' to those who have contributed towards the upkeep of the parish and other causes during the period of lockdown. Hopefully, over the next few weeks, the return to Mass will allow more people the opportunity to make up the deficits. Offerings can be made as you leave the church.
You are also invited to return your SCIAF Wee Box and/or contribute to the SCIAF collection box which will be available after Masses. A cheque for £2000 was issued to SCIAF from the parish in anticipation of your generosity - some households sent off monies separately.

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.
