During the past 12 months we were honoured here at St Patrick’s Parish, to celebrate 15 marriages of couples who committed their lives to each other in love. We welcomed 82 new Christians into the Catholic Church by celebrating the Sacrament of Baptism for them in the presence of their parents, God-parents and families. We also said farewell to 14 friends when we gave thanks for their lives at their funerals. May this new year, 2019, continue to be a time to celebrate love, life and eternal life.
