This week’s newsletter is available on the newsletter page.

MASS TIMES

All Public Celebrations and Services have been suspended during the Coronoa Virus Pandemic.

In these difficult times, Father Colin will be continuing say (sing) the Office of Prayer as usual and say Mass. As far as possible I will attempt to put a link to the latest live feed (see ASSUMPTION CHURCH LIVE STREAM CLICK HERE) below) so that you can navigate to the stream easily, please bear in mind when the encoder drops out youtube creates a new stream reference. Since the times in his diary clash with my work, you may not get access to the feed, but all feeds will be archived at some point.
