Over the last few weeks we have learned the value of keeping in touch with family and friends – we need each other. I miss seeing you at Mass on Sunday: I miss the sense of community, the praying together, our conversations and our chats after Mass. ‘Absence makes the heart grow fonder’ is an old, apt, saying.

Today I am appealing to you to make contact with others from the Parish – give them a call, send them an email, a text, make the contact. Some of our groups have set up or are setting up weekly Zoom sessions – the Leadership Group, the RCIA, the First Holy Communion Parents’ Group, the Good Shepherd Prayer Group, the Contemplative Prayer Group, the Choir, the Folk Group. What about your group?  What about others you could join and keep in contact?  Simply make the contact:     Perhaps you could read a reading, say a prayer. Have a chat. Please contact others and see what is possible. Please keep in contact!
