Meditations on the Stations of the Cross
Our last evening of meditations takes place on Monday evening. This will be at 6pm to avoid clashing with the cluster Holy Hour, which takes place in St Martin's at 7pm. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has participated in the meditations. I am grateful to everyone who supported this so enthusiastically. I hope it has been as rewarding for you to participate in as it was for me to prepare, Jennifer.
 
Sacrament of Reconciliation
Congratulation to our children, the Primary Three Pupils of St Martin’s Primary School who received their First Sacrament of Reconciliation this last Friday, March 23rd. Many thanks to everybody who supported and helped them: their families, their school Head Teacher and teachers, the parish catechists and friends. We continue to remember them in our prayers.

The Flourish (March Edition)
The March edition of The Flourishthe Archdiocesan newspaper is available. Please collect your copy from the back of the church.
 
Patient's Religious Declaration, which a person when admitted to hospital, or a relative/friend, should give to ward-staff to ensure they can see a Catholic Chaplain. This can also be achieved through a verbal-request to staff. This is necessary due to the way confidentiality rules are applied in most hospitals. Please see notice board or website for further details.
