Lord Jesus Christ

By your Life, Death and Resurrection

You call me to a New Life.

and find that Peace, beyond all understanding,

that comes to all

who make their Home in You?

Parish Upkeep, Ways of Giving Online and General


First of all we are really grateful to all of you who already are giving in various ways to

enable our church continue and pay its way.

Like all homes the bills continually come in even when we can’t work.

The Church is very similar.

Fr John hopes to work with everyone to enable us play our part and get us through this time without going into deficit.

Act of Contrition


An Act of Contrition


My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart.

In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good,

I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things.

I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.

Our Saviour Jesus Christ suffered and died for us.

In his name, my God, have mercy.


When we are aware of our need for Sacramental Confession but cannot avail of it due  to the Coronavirus Pandemic Safeguarding measures,

This act of contrition if sincerely said from the Heart with a firm  purpose of amendment restores atonement with God.

When possible  a Sacramental Confession should be made.

Spiritual Act of Communion


This prayer is said when we find ourselves unable to be physically present at Mass but wish to join in it.

My Jesus,
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart

I embrace You as if You were already there and unite
myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
