Notices and Support            
'Attendance at funerals to be kept to a maximum of 10 people.' (NOTE, 21.5: Based on a sample of three funerals in our parish since Monday, the attendance figures were approximately 12, 20, and 35. This shows how hard it is for us personally right now, in certain situations, to adhere to general government guidelines.)

Phase 2 : Monday 8th June   Note now that "up to 25 immediate family and close friends may attend funeral services".

Phase 3 : Monday 29th June  Under the heading Social : Indoor Gathering we read: "Indoor gatherings of up to 50 people when conducted in line with public health advice are permissible."

ALONE  has launched a national support line and additional supports for older people who have concerns or are facing difficulties relating to the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Professional staff are available to answer queries and give advice and reassurance where necessary. The support line is open seven days a week, 8am - 8pm, by calling  0818 222 024.

Below is an idea for an album that you might like to insert a page in to have as a memory of these strange days when we come to look back on them -- hopefully, not too long more. Your page could be some (children's) art work, or maybe a bit of a diary or a photo of something in our parishes that will capture some of the atmosphere we're in the middle of at the moment.                                                                                Send your page to
