It was good to celebrate both inductions over the last few weeks. I was very mindful of the support that you gave me. Thank you to everybody who baked and supplied cakes for both celebrations. As I said when I first arrived, I am asking for your continued patience, prayers and support in adjusting to a new set up in both parishes.With the season of Easter fast approaching, this applies especially to our Triduum celebrations. I am so thankful of the support given by sacristans, musicians, servers and rota/flower/cleaning team members.

Don’t forget that British Summer Time begins next Sunday morning (31
st March) when the clocks go forward. It means, of course, that we shall be losing that extra hour of sleep!!! I hope your Lenten journey is going well. God Bless you all. Fr David
