PASTORAL LETTER FROM BISHOP FINTAN  to the people of the Diocese outlining the latest developments in responding to the Covid 19 pandemic. It is hoped to be able to open our Churches for Personal, Private Prayer from Monday May 18th, 2020. To read Bishop Fintan’s letter see:

SAFEGUARDING The month of May is normally the Diocesan Safeguarding Month. However in these exceptional circumstances during this month, it is not possible to mark it as we would normally do. We ask that people keep in their prayers those children and adults who are experiencing harm and or have been hurt by others. We ask that you look out for those who are struggling during this time, by giving them a smile, a wave or a few kind words.

Weekly Reflection

 “Our protectress, you know our needs, and we know that you will provide, so that, as at Cana in Galilee, joy and celebration may return after this time of trial.

Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves to the will of the Father and to do what Jesus tells us. For he took upon himself our suffering, and burdened himself with our sorrows to bring us, through the cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.

We fly to your protection, O Holy Mother of God.  Do not despise our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us always
from every danger, O Glorious and Blessed Virgin.
