Due to the current restrictions, confessions for Easter will not take place. Catholic doctrine teaches that if a person cannot get to Confession, it is sufficient to confess one’s sins to God, seeking forgiveness and with the intention of going to confession when next possible. God forgives the sins and the person is renewed in heart and soul. When the opportunity then arises later to go to Confession, he or she should do so.
As part of the celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of the dedication of Our Lady & St Brendan’s Church this year, the parish hopes to hold an exhibition and produce a publication relating to the history of the Church over the past 50 years. We would be delighted to receive photographs and memorabilia. All items submitted will be returned to the owner as soon as they are scanned/copied.
to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Our Lady & St Brendan’s Church. The Pastoral Parish Council has arranged a Mission to take place from October 18th to October 23rd 2020. Further details at a later date.
