CONFESSIONS : It has been difficult to set a specific regular time for Confession. Please feel  free to arrange a time. Fr Gerry is usually available at Sacred Heart on Saturday evenings  from 4.15pm or after weekday Masses.  

This Sunday is Sea Sunday and there will be a collection for the Apostleship of the Sea  now called Stella Maris, in both parishes.

We welcome  any boys and girls who have made their First Holy Communion and would like to serve reg ularly at our weekend Masses. Full training and guidance will be given.

Seafarer and fishers play a vital role in all of our lives, but they often work in difficult, hazardous condi tions. In the last year more crews have been abandoned by their employers than ever before. Many are  still being denied the right to leave their ships for even a short break away from the relentless noise and  pressure on board. Many are reporting more stress and poorer mental health.  

Sea Sunday is when the Church prays for all those who live and work on the sea. Our support in the collec tion will help make a difference to seafarers and fishers in need. You can donate in Church or via This collection will help Stella Maris continue their important work of  spiritually and pastorally befriending and helping those who live and work at sea.  

CHILDRENS’ LITURGY—WE WILL BE TAKING A BREAK OVER THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS. Next Sunday will  be the last session until September when the schools go back. We look forward to seeing you then and  hearing all your news.  THE SOWER MAGAZINE —our free diocesan magazine available today in print and online via diocesan  website.
