For everyone the coronavirus lockdown means a period of uncertainty and financial instability. In the parish, as in every household, the bills continue to arrive and have to be paid even though our income has been cut dramatically.


We, therefore, encourage those of you who can to continue supporting us financially.


We appreciate your ongoing support of our parish community. Your financial support is needed if we are to bear witness to the gospel message through our worship, ministries, formation and care for God’s people. You may use this option to contribute. Thank you.
