A Joyful and Blessed Easter to you all. The Lord has truly risen. Alleluia ! 

Thank you for your attendance and participation at the Holy Week-Triduum Services. Thank  you to all who helped our celebrations particularly the Musicians and Readers. It has been  good to return to some semblance of normality after the long absence. May the Lord bless  us and keep us safe in the times ahead. 

Collection at Easter Sunday Masses is the traditional collection for the Clergy. Please put your offerings in  the basket in the porch.  

Children’s Liturgy at Sacred Heart today—all are welcome but we are quite happy for parents to send  their children unaccompanied so you can enjoy some peace in the Mass.
