Fr Kieran, our parish priest for the last few years, died peacefully on Monday 20th March. Fr Petroc writes "He was strengthened by the sacraments and prayers of the Church, and in his last weeks was cared for by staff and friends with great kindness. His funeral will be at Sacred Heart church, and details will be publicised when we know them.

Please keep Fr Harry in your prayers. He has been admitted to hospital with an infection.
