Lockdown measures
We are so lucky to be able to continue to keep our Churches open for communal worship whilst we are in this new period of lockdown. We believe this is, in part, a testament to the hard work of churches to bring in very strict safety measures in order to keep the community safe, as well as recognising the importance of keeping God in our lives, now more than ever.
However, we recognise that not everyone will be able to continue coming to Mass, if not well enough, if showing symptoms or needing to isolate, or if now shielding again. Please use the Cathedral online streaming in order to still feel connected to Mass. Please also reach out if you are struggling with loneliness or worries. We can pray for you and try to offer practical support.
For those who are able to attend, we warmly welcome you to Mass at our usual times. Please use our eventbright link to book a place and use the QR code for the track and trace system on arrival.
We must be continue to be extremely careful with social distancing, wearing of masks, and sanitising hands on arrival and on leaving church so please cooperate with these measures and with our stewards' instructions in order to keep everyone safe from this new, more virulent, strain of the virus.
We pray for an end to COVID19 and a return to a safer world.

The Epiphany
Blessings to you all on this Feast day - The Solemnity of the Epiphany.
Just as our Lord revealed Himself to the wise men on the 1st Epiphany, we too can reveal the Lord to other people by our way of life... we can be the light in the world too...
God bless you all - Fr Frank

Thank you, as ever, to Martin le Poidevin for sharing his musical talents with us. The Act of Worship for the Solemnity of the Epiphany.

Thank you all for the extraordinarily generous Christmas Offerings to the priests - even though our numbers of parishioners attending Mass over the Octave of Christmas was very small in comparison to normal years, I received £4,340 in offerings. The generosity shown to me over this difficult year has been very humbling. 

In case you missed it...
We said a very fond farewell to Elaine, our Preschool's Manager, back in November and a fond Hello to Kelly who has taken over the running of our wonderful early years facility. Welcome to you Kelly!
Elaine will be greatly missed after giving so many years to the education of our wider parish community's children.
Enjoy your retirement Elaine!

THIS CLIP (CLICK HERE) was sent to Fr Frank by Mgr Gabriel Layden - it is what we will all look like the minute the world is safe again! 
Thanks, as ever, for continuing to send us 'the funnies', Mgr Gabriel!

Apart, yet together.   #ChurchAtHome
