The celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass takes place in our parish most days. The Mass is, for Catholics , the high point of the day since the Eucharist is the ‘source and summit’ of all we do in the Christian life. All members of the parish are encouraged to attend the celebration of Mass as often as possible.
The usual weekly Mass times are listed below but always check the weekly Parish Newsletter as changes have sometimes to be made for pastoral reasons.
Particular intentions for which the Mass is offered can be found on the weekly Parish Newsletter.
10.am - Morning Mass
12 noon - Polish Mass
7pm - Polish Mass
Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday
10am - Morning Mass
(Monday, Thursday, Saturday - No Morning Mass)
Offering Mass for a special Intention is a long standing custom in the Catholic Church. It is usually considered that special graces are obtained for whom the Mass is offered. Masses are offered for many reasons, for the souls in purgatory, for someone who is sick, in remembrance for someone who is deceased, or in honour of an anniversary, birthday etc.
If you would like to have a Mass offered for a particular intention please complete one of the ‘Mass Intention’ envelopes found in the porch of the church and place in the collection basket at Mass or hand in to the sacristy. Alternatively, send to the priests using the contact information at the link below:
Catholics are always welcome to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation - whether is has been weeks, months or years since your last confession. Those who come to the sacrament often say afterwards that they feel at peace and that a great burden has been lifted from them. Simply ask the priest to help you make a good confession.
See the times of confessions at the bottom of this page.

An altar server is a lay person who assists the priest at the altar, primarily during the Sacrifice of the Mass, so that worship is performed in a reverent and beautiful manner.
Following First Holy Communion children and young people are encouraged to consider becoming Altar Servers. To know more about the role please speak to one of the priests.
