Bishop Byrne made the following announcement on Tuesday 24th March:

We are now Live-Streaming Masses
Mass is live-streamed at 10.00am every day from one of our churches. You can access the streaming from this Facebook page.
Please take this opportunity to experience one or more of the live-streaming Masses from your local Church.
You can set up a Standing Order for your Offertory Donations to the parish by using this Standing Order Form. You can also use the form to Gift Aid your donations which can boost your donations by 25p for every pound you donate.
Reporting of Sick and those Recently Dead
There are now two contact forms to report sick and those recently dead which will allow us to easily collect information and make it known through the website and/or the newsletter about those who need our prayers as a community at this time.
Use the Sick Form to report sick and the RIP Form to report those who have recently died.
Please pray for those who are experiencing illness at this time.
