Welcome to our new website. 2016 was a very special year for our parish. In July of that year, our church was consecrated by Archbishop Bernard Longley. To commemorate this event, our website was redesigned and modernised to work across a variety of devices such as laptops, desktops, tablets and smart phones. As always, we are dependant on you to provide feedback on this site so please let us know what you think using the contact us page here.
Stop Press! Our parish church was consecrated on 9th July 2016. Come back soon to see a full report on the preparations and the Consecration Mass presided over by Archbishop Bernard Longley here

Today the Church throughout the world celebrates the Solemnity of the Ascension of our Lord into heaven. The earthly ministry of our Lord had ended and the time came for him to return to the Father and take his place at the right hand of God. The ascension is a cause of great joy for us for as Christ said: "It is better for you that I go to the Father." The ascension means that he is with us in the most profound sense. He is with us when we gather for the Eucharist. He is with us in the word proclaimed, he is with us in the sacrament of the altar. Jesus is not out of sight and out of mind through the ascension. Through the ascension it is not his absence but his presence with us which makes our hearts grow fonder. And we encounter Our Risen and Ascended Lord in the Eucharist as we ascend to the presence of the One who is seated at the right hand of the Father.
