Private Home Visits
The Archbishop has reminded priests that the lockdown exemptions allow priests to visit parishioners at home for any pastoral need, including the sacraments of anointing and confession. Please do not hesitate to call Fr John if you would like him to visit. These visits are only for the person in the house with a pastoral need, not a wider group.
I will thank you in advance for your co-operation with these measures which are for the good of society. Please continue to pray for those affected in any way by the coronavirus, for our civic leaders as they discern what is best for us all, and that the world will be soon be delivered from this scourge.
Fr John Doherty, Parish Priest
