Welcome back

We welcome back Jennifer our Parish Secretary who has been greatly missed while she has been unwell. We are pleased that Jennifer has resumed her seat in the parish office and wish her an ongoing and full recovery.
From Jennifer: ‘I would like to thank all the parishioners who have offered prayers for me and enquired after my health over the past weeks. It really has been appreciated. I am making a gradual return to work so that I can catch up and find my feet again so please bear with me while I get back into the swing of things. We will let you know when I am back full time and the office is open every day again. On behalf of Fr Sean and myself, I must also thank the parishioners who have kept things running while I have been away. God bless you.’ Jennifer
