TODAY PENTECOST SUNDAY—we are celebrating the Baptism, Confirmation and First Commun ion of Leah and Ciaira, two young women who we welcome as members of the Church.  The ceremony will be incorporated into the Sunday Mass. Let us support them with our prayers  as they take this important step.  

LIVESTREAM : In spite of our best efforts there continue to be problems with the Saturday even ing Livestream from SH. It seems to be a busy time on the net.  

If this happens remember you can watch the Livestream from EM at 11 am on Sunday which  seems more reliable. Sorry for any inconvenience.
