COVID-19 Support Line for Older People

ALONE has launched a national support line and additional supports for older people who have concerns relating to COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Professional staff to answer queries and give advice and reassurance. line open Mon.- Fri. 8am-8pm, 0818 222 024. 

We pray for the class of 2020 who would normally be doing public examinations at this time.


 The good news of Pentecost is that the Spirit, poured into our hearts, enables all four aspects of our faith to live: The Spirit helps us in our prayer; The body of Christ is animated by the gifts of the Spirit;                                Our service of others gets its energy from the Spirit and the Spirit “reminds us” of all that Jesus taught. Today, we celebrate discipleship in the community of faith.
