The Faith Sharing Group
Meetings recommence from Monday, 12 October in the Upper room of the Parish Hall at 7.00pm. We will be exploring the Sacrament of Reconciliation and how this sacrament fits in to life within the Catholic community. If any new enquirers wish to join the Faith Sharing Group they need only get in touch with Fr Walsh or John Gildert through the Presbytery. Any request will be dealt with in the strictest confidence. Please continue to play your part
by praying for those who have come forward to learn about the Catholic Faith, and pray that others may do the same.

For those parishioners with smartphones or tablets, you may be interested in two apps to help with readings and prayers whilst on the move.
The Universalis app (universalis.com) gives you daily psalms, prayers and readings from the Catholic Liturgy of the Hours. It also includes the readings and responsorial psalms for the daily Mass. There is no need to connect to the internet once the app has been downloaded as it contains all the necessary information. It is available for the iPhone and iPad from the iTunes Store.
The Pray As You Go app is available for both iOS and Android platforms from Jesuit Ministries (pray-as-you-go.org). Pray As You Go is a daily prayer session, designed for use on a portable device, to help you pray whenever you find time.
Please be aware there may be a cost involved to purchase these apps.
