Divine Mercy Sunday

 

Divine Mercy Sunday is a very special Sunday when the Divine Floodgates from Heaven are wide-opened and Jesus offers us the total forgiveness of all sins and punishment to any soul, who goes to Confession and receives Him in Holy Communion, on that day. This special day will take place on Sunday 8 April. Please check our newsletter and the website for more information.

Music Retreat 2018

 

A wonderful and insprirational Music Retreat took place in the Crypt on Saturday 17 February. New Mass settings were practised including Taize chants in English and Polish. We were also blessed to have singers and musicians from around the Deanery in attendance. It is very much hoped that in the future we will work together on different music initiatives and continue to enrich our parishes even more.  Thank you to everyone that came along and supported the day. It was greatly appreciated. Please go to our gallery page on the website for images of the day!

 

Are you a musician or singer, is your child interested in joining a music group? Can they play the clarinet, guitar, piano/keyboard, recorder, violin or any other instrument? If so, please come along. we would love to see you. 

 

We meet every Wednesday in the Crypt from 6.15pm. All are welcome.

Prayer to St Anthony

 

Saint Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find {mention your petition} which has been lost. As least restore to me peace and tranquillity of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss. To this favour I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God. Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God. Amen.
