Introducing your new Parish Priest

Fr John O'Leary

I am very much looking forward to my 'Christmas' break next week. It will be my first Sunday away since coming to the parish last April. Many thanks to Fr Greg Morgan who will be taking care of the parish in my absence.

Since Christmas there has been eight funerals. May the souls of all those whose funerals I have celebrated  rest in peace. I am glad that some baptisms are now in the diary too, and even enquiries about weddings! The First Holy Communion programme is progressing nicely. Actually, the children are now preparing to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time. Please do keep them in your prayers. I was really impressed by some of the pieces written by our Confirmation candidates on the saint whose name they are taken as a Confirmation name: not only were they were well researched, but also extremely thoughtful with respect to why they had chosen that saint to be an inspiring example and living intercessor. Please continue to pray for our young people preparing for Confirmation. Thank you.

God bless you all

Fr John
