Reflecting on the Readings
Our weekly time of reflecting on the readings for the coming Sunday Mass. These sessions, which are led by Deacon Mark, have a very simple format allowing us to read, reflect on, and chat about each of the readings. The aims, too, are simple: to help us understand the readings better, to see how they relate the to reality of our daily lives, and to help us be better prepared for the Sunday Mass. Each session takes place in the Chapel on Thursday evening, begins at 7.30pm and lasts for about an hour and a quarter. If you would like to join us you will be most welcome.

Parish Synod Report
There is still plenty to reflect on from our parish discussion for the Synod.

On Saturday mornings, following the 9.15am Mass, we will now have silent Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from 10.00am until 12 noon. The opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) will also be available during that time. Feel free to drop in at any point for prayer, for confession or both.
