N.B.  Website changes
John Costa, 12 June 2020
As you may noticed there have been  changes made to the Mass Times page above. This regularly updated website established early in 2008 was introduced to improve communication across the parish with timely information related to our changing Parish and wider Church, and to strengthen the connection between the then more disparate three communities comprising our Parish. It replaced a small earlier website which was only updated occasionally, by a university student who was paid a nominal fee.  The current website structure has progressively evolved with our circumstances, which continue to change. The COVID-19 emergency has necessarily also altered this website structure, which again needs to adapt as we move further towards a 'new normal'. This website also stores much Church history, past and more recent, so some further rearrangements need to be made. For any issues with this website you are welcome to email [email protected]  or contact myself directly.
