Funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by the National Lottery Community Fund, has enabled us to pay for our project “Building Bridges”. With this we have been able to buy new professional equipment, to stream services such as weddings and funerals. Thanks to the Government for making this possible.

Report into Child Sexual Abuse in the RC Church

You will know that this report was published recently.  It makes for some sad and shameful reading but it is to the victims and survivors of such abuse that our thoughts and prayers should be most addressed.  Many of their lives have been destroyed or gravely damaged and the Church must make sure that we address this matter in penitence and with resolve.  Bishop Mark O’Toole, Bishop of Plymouth, has asked that his Pastoral Message together with contacts be made available to parishioners.
