St Therese of Lisieux and the Little Way.

    Recognize that each day is a gift in which your life can make a difference by the way you choose to live it. Put hope in a future in which God will be all and love will consume your spirit.
    Choose life, not the darkness of pettiness and greed.

    St. Therese knew the difference love makes by allowing love to be the statement she made each day of her life.

    Dear All,

    After the government's latest pronouncement on self isolating our church will be closed until further notice

    We remain the Spiritual Body of Christ and will support each other and our communities through spiritual and practical communion.

    Prayer: remember to pray individually or agree with friends a time to pray as a group in your own homes / online during the day.
    Pray especially for people working in caring for the sick and elderly and all key workers who help to keep supplies, education and infrastucture functioning.
    Though most of us remain in our own homes this is a time when community is more important than ever.
    And remember to pray for all those whose lives were already in jeopardy before the coronavirus struck.. for all those refugees stranded on borders with little or no resources and no sense of when they will be able to find rest and safety.

    up-to-date information including prayer suggestions and links to online services including are available on our homepage

     Sunday Mass. (The obligation to participate in Sunday Mass has been suspended)
