Keeping Each Other Safe

Due to the fast spread of the new variant of the covid-19 virus, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales (CBCEW) have asked parishes to keep the Mass as brief as possible and are reminding us that people should not talk either inside the church or outside with people outside their bubble. So please do go home right after Mass.

Organ Concerts

Our parish organist, Mr Tom Keogh will be giving a livestream organ concert on Sunday 31st of January at 1.15pm. There will be a further concert on Sunday 14th February at the same time and again on 14th March. Contributions for Tom’s expenses can be sent to him in a cheque made out to him c/o HC priory.
