Novena Thanks: A sincere word of thanks to everyone who attended the Novena and to all our speakers. It was a blessed and special time for all of us. Every night of the Novena had something special to offer. The speakers inspired us with their challenging talks. Thanks to all our musicians and singers too. We particularly want to thank all those who attended and who made such an essential contribution to the Novena. The Church will be in good hands when you eventually play a central role. There are so many good people willing and able to make a contribution with many and varied gifts. May God bless and sustain you all.

Our thanks to Canon Ian Ellis and his wife Heather and to Rev Cecil Pringle and his wife Hilary for an unforgettable closing day.

Congratulations to Sean Murphy who reflected on the Novena so inspiringly at the closing. Your contribution was much appreciated.

St Patrick’s Breastplate:I bind myself today The power of God to hold and lead His eye to watch, His might to stay, His ear to hark unto my need: The wisdom of my God to teach His hand to guide, His shield to ward; The Word of God to give me speech, His heavenly host to be my guard. Christ be with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ deep within me, Christ below me, Christ above me, Christ at my right hand, Christ at my left hand, Christ as I lie down, Christ as I arise. Christ as I stand, Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks to me Christ in every eye that sees me Christ in every ear that hears me.”
