Trinity Sunday After the whole cycle of the Pascal Mystery culminating in Pentecost, Mother Church has us ponder and contemplate the utter mystery and essence of God. Revelations demonstrate God in one in three persons; a mystery which defies mathematics. We ask Our Lady, Daughter of the Father, Mother of the Son and Spouse of the Holy Spirit to obtain for each of us the spirit of adoration before the Most Blessed Trinity.

Confirmations:  We welcome Bishop Patrick Lynch – successor to the Apostles - who is to confirm 18 of our parishioners today at the 12.45pm Mass

Thank you to Mrs Phyllis Cort who runs the Confirmation programme for us every year.
