2ND Sunday in Ordinary Time (C)
16th January  2022

Link to Parish Bulletin 

Christ came on earth to change people and to make
all things new. He came to change us just as he
changed water into wine. His presence among us is
an invitation to change our ways and a call
to a new manner of life. To change our lives
we need to turn to Christ and call on his help.

PRESENTATION OF THE LORD... Wednesday 2 February
8:15am & 7:00pm Masses. We celebrate Jesus’
presentation in the Temple. He is the light
of the nations and the glory of his people.
As we remember our call to bring light
into the world, let us glory in the presence of
God amongst us.

COVID VACCINATION... Arch Patrick O’Regan DD
has written to all Parishes strongly recommending that
ALL clergy, staff and Volunteers (Covid Marshals,
Holy Communion Ministers, Altar Servers, Readers,
Choirs etc) engaged with Pastoral related activities
need to ensure they are double vaccinated.
The Church’s position is clear both on a
global and national level that the
common good must prevail.
Therefore we require ALL Volunteers
to be vaccinated or stand down
from their role in the Parish.

WEEKLY BULLETIN NOTICES (including Mass Intentions)
for the Bulletin must be phoned in/handed
in to the Parish Secretary no later than
Wednesday of each week. Thank you.
