Welcome to our Parishes

The month of November is tradi- tionally a time for us to remember and pray for those we have known and loved and have died. We pray for them, visit the places where their bodies or ashes rest and as al- ways we remember them at the Al- tar of the Lord. It has become a tradition to hold a special mass in each parish to remember and pray for the dead. This special mass at the Immaculate Conception will be on Thursday 11th November at 7pm and at St Gerard’s, Tuesday 30th November at 6pm. We will also be blessing the Memorial Garden at the Immaculate Conception and the cemeteries at St Gerard’s after the Sunday morning masses on the 31st October. During the month of November we also collect donations for masses to be said for the Holy Souls. People will naturally remember loved ones and have masses said for them throughout the year but it is also an ancient Catholic tradition to offer masses for the Holy Souls. This in- cludes all who have died and espe- cially those who have no one to re- member them in prayer. It is a tra- dition that brings home to each one of us the reality that each adopted Child of God is also our sister or brother. Like on All Saints Day which starts the month of Novem- ber we celebrate the bonds of friendship and support across the whole of God’s family, a bond that even death does not break. If you wish to make a donation, please place it in an envelope and write on it ‘Holy Souls’ leaving the envelope in the collection basket in church or pass it through the letterbox of the presbytery. Finally during November, we invite people to provide information about the anniversaries of those who have died so that our register can be up- dated and the anniversaries for the year ahead remembered and hon- oured. Again, please forward details to office@tpicr.co.uk

Service times and Sacraments

Attending Mass

The Sunday obligation has been lifted because of the pandemic. This means that you do not need to attend mass on a Sunday and can attend on another day of the week.

Living with the virus has been challenging but we have also found new ways of living our faith. May we continue to journey together with generous hearts and growing trust in the presence of the Lord in our lives. God Bless, Fr Desmond.

Streamed Services

The Saturday 6pm evening Mass at the Immaculate Conception and the 11am Mass at St Gerard's on Sunday are streamed live.

We hope that these opportunities will help people who are house bound, living in Nursing/Residential Homes or in hospital/hospice. Any friend interested in what goes on in our churches might also find these live recordings helpful as well as members of our parish communities who may be travelling.
