After not feeling too good for the last few weeks (as some had noticed) you may have already heard the news that I was admitted to hospital during the week after having suffered a stroke. I am already on the way to a good and hopefully almost-full recovery (if I do what I'm told, which will be a first for me!) and I am so very grateful for the concern and prayers offered by so many. But nobody is indispensable, and certainly not me, so the life of the parishes will continue more or less as normal thanks to the kind help of so many priests and deacons (who already have enough to do without being burdened with my inaction) and of many members of the parishes keeping things flowing smoothly behind the scenes. There may be some slight alterations on occasion to Masses but these will be notified in advance wherever possible. I look forward to being "back in the saddle" as soon as I can (I'm already bored with inactivity!) and until then apologise for any inconvenience.

The Piety Shop at the back of Sacred Heart Church has a selection of Christmas cards, Catholic diaries and calendars for sale. There is also a catalogue available to look through any Catholic piety items or devotional objects you may wish to order. Please see Christine England if you wish to have a browse through the catalogue.


The Legion of Mary will lead the praying of the Rosary at 8.30am in Sacred Heart Church on the first Sunday of each month immediately before the celebration of the 9.00am Mass
