St Martin's Youth Group would like to thank everyone who came to their shadow play of the Stations of the Cross. It was a very prayerful evening and the children appreciate your support. £100 was raised for Quarriers 'What If' project, supporting homeless teenagers and young people. 3 of our young people have now completed their work for the Pope Francis Faith Award and are awaiting their results. Please keep them in your prayers.

Next Sunday, 28th April, is Divine Mercy Sunday. This year Bishop John Keenan has initiated a Rosary Movement of Reparation for God's Mercy on the British Isles.

We will start at 2.30pm with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and the Rosary before the Chaplet of Divine Mercy at 3pm. There will be a Holy Hour, confessions, veneration of the Divine Mercy image and benediction. The church will remain open for private prayer with the image and conclude with a youth Mass at 5pm to which everyone is welcome.
