Epiphany House Blessing: The custom is to mark with chalk the lintel above your front door, or a space nearby in the following way: 20+C+M+B+23 The year and the three crosses are easy to understand. The three letters either stand for the traditional names of the Wise Men (Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar) or the Latin Christus Mansionem Benedicat (May Christ bless this home) a prayer you can say as you mark the doorway with chalk.

Covid 19: The Health & Safety of each and every one is paramount. Please be aware and respectful of each other in our church buildings.

Our choir seeks new singers especially sopranos, to join their friendly & committed group. They sing at the 11am Solemn Mass on Sundays, Holy Days and Choral Evening Prayer on the 3rd Sunday of the month. Music from Plainsong through Polyphony, to quality contemporary music. They rehearse on Wednesday evenings. Basic sight-reading skills are helpful but not essential. If you are open to developing your musical ability, vocal tuition forms part of rehearsals. You don’t need to be a Catholic, there are already Christians of other denominations who are members. The choir just asks you take on the ethos of what they do in leading music in worship …. If this interests you or someone you know, please speak to David after the 11am Mass or contact him via the parish office ... Music page
