FROM FR TIM
Mass for Madeleine McCann and the family: Wednesday, 3 May at 6.00pm. On this tenth anniversary of her disappearance, please remember to pray not only for Madeleine, but for her parents and all the family.

6.00pm Sunday Mass. We have started trialling the use of the thurible during 6.00pm Mass in order to train our younger altar servers in its use. This will be dependent on there being enough altar servers, so the thurible may not be used each week.
