THE POPES INTENTIONS FOR AUGUST ARE,

for all those who work and live from the sea, among them sailors, fishermen and their families.


AUGUST

The month of August is dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.


Please observe the following Legal Restrictions agreed by the Bishops and the Govenment:

  • Wear a face mask – masks will be available, or if possible, bring your own.
  • Sanitize your hands in the church porch.
  • Make your way to the seats, which are not restricted.
  • Stewards will direct you, spaced and in single file to receive Holy Communion and return to your place by the side aisles.
  • Exit the church from the front door and to the right. Sanitize your hands if you wish.
  • St. John’s Church is designated to seat 70 plus (where a household of adults and/or children count as one) If a greater number of people than this turn up – they will be encouraged to hear Mass from the church forecourt, weather permitting, or to attend evening Mass at Christ the King at 6pm. I hope it won’t come to this.
  • We are most grateful to our parishioners who have been so faithful with their financial support during these weeks of lockdown we are not permitted to organise a collection so a basket will be available at the entrance to the Church to receive your offering or donation. Many thanks. Fr. Paschal.

ST. LUKE’S S.V.P,

during the ‘lockdown’ we have been making personal telephone calls to people living alone and in addition, during the good weather have been able to make face to face calls carried out at a safe distance door to pavement/path. We provide a ‘listening ear’ and a friendly chat. If you have a relative, friend or neighbour who would like to be contacted in this way please leave their details at the Parish House.


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY.

The smartest person we know is the one who asks our advice.
