DOWNLOAD THE 2020 SACRED HEART NOVENA FOR FREE!
The Messenger Sacred Heart Novena is one of our most popular publications each year. It is held for the nine days leading up to the Feast of the Sacred Heart, which is always celebrated nineteen days after Pentecost. Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is considered a symbol of "God's boundless and passionate love for humanity". Many have found comfort and solace praying the Novena, and this year we have particular reason as a community, a nation and a global people to find strength, patience and reassurance in God’s love for us.
As a way of encouraging and supporting our readers and promoters, we have made the 2020 Novena available to download from our website FREE OF CHARGE.
Simply click here to visit the page and either view the booklet on your computer or print it off to use during each day of the Novena.
NOTE: The Novena is also available as a pull-out supplement in the June Messenger.

THANK YOU 24/04/2020
Sincere thanks to parishioners who have dropped their Family Offering Envelopes and Easter Dues Donations into the Parish Office or at my house. I appreciate your gesture of financial support for the Parish at this time and if any parishioners wishes to make their normal contributions please be assured of our gratitude. In accordance with Revenue and Diocesan Guidelines, all donations are recorded on our Parish Financial Programme. Thank you again for your support at all times, especially during these very trying and difficult times. Mass each day at 12 noon (Mon-Sat) and the 11.00am on Sunday morning (viewed through our parish webcam) are offered for your intentions and the intentions given through my e-mail. Sometimes with funerals we may not be able to celebrate the 12 noon mass but keep an eye on our Parish Website for information. May God sustain all of us with strength, kindness, patience and caring for one in these days.

Loving lord, in this time of anxiety, give me serenity. In this time of fear, give me confidence in your love. In times of illness, help me to preserve my health and the health of those around me.
In this time of social isolation, let my phone calls be ones of kindness, wisdom and compassion. In this time of worry, give me the courage to reaffirm my belief that we are together in this time of trial. Lord Jesus, in this time of great challenge, we need your presence, we need your healing peace. Help us to live in hope that this pandemic will pass.
Under your protection, O Mary, we ask your help and protection. Give us confidence in your care for us in these days. O Mother of the Healing Jesus, we pray for the compassion of your Son upon us. Give us a deep faith, trust and an awareness that our God is with us. AMEN.
