Dear Parishioners

We are making a minor change to the process for the distribution of Holy Communion at the Sunday 10.30 mass. From this weekend there will be another minister who will distribute Holy Communion to the choir and to the non-ambulent. This means that while the first to receive Holy Communion on the Sacred Heart side will remain those in the family benches, on the other side it should be those in the main block of benches. These communicants will no longer need to wait for the choir to go first. This is to enable the choir to return to their places more quickly and begin the Holy Communion hymn without delay.                                    

God Bless,                                                                            Fr Doug
