2020 has been a challenging year for our parish.  Whilst we have been able to come to church for private prayer – we have not been able to come together to celebrate the Mass and receive holy communion for most of this year.  However, life goes on and we adapt with spiritual communion, livestream masses, online donations and Zoom prayer groups.

The First Holy Communion Programme started on 1st November with our first Zoom class and this month we have explored the sacrament of Baptism and how God created this beautiful world for us.  We looked at Pope Francis’ call to look after the earth and each other – click here to view CAFOD’s animation of Pope Francis’ letter for children.

Our families have pledged to help care for our common home and put together this virtual pledge tree.

We’d like to invite you to join us in pledging to look after our common home this Advent. 

Share your heart pledges by emailing your pledge to stjohnfhc@gmail.com and we’ll add it to the tree.

God bless
