Dear Parishioners and Friends,
In the light of the situation regarding the COVID 19 (Corona Virus) I would like to extend to you all an assurance of my heart felt thoughts and prayers. I am very aware for many of us, this is a time of anxiety and fear as we deal with this unknown disease and its outcome. We must think especially for these heroic Doctors, nurses, paramedics and helpers, who are often terrified and afraid, yet they put their lives on the line for so many of us. I was very moved when I heard a nurse say on the ITV News last night, that she prays before she goes out on the wards. We all know how Jesus went around the whole of Galilee teaching in their synagogues proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and curing all kinds of diseases and sickness among the people, Mt. 4:23. Pope Francis too is also united to all of us by this special prayer. Let us be strong together and for each other.
