Father Gerry's is scheduled to celebrate Holy Mass with us for the last time on Sunday 11th October.
We give thanks for his service and prayers over the last 9 months. He saw us through not only the dark days and cold nights of winter but also through the darker bleaker times of spring and summer - months of lockdown, furlough, isolation, the closed Church and its reopening with restricted capacity. Times of sadness were endured as loved ones were lost and times of joy and hope with celebrations of the sacrament of baptism.
We learnt about the sufferings of children, the anxiety of their parents, together with the skills and compassion of the medical teams at the Birmingham Children's Hospital.
Thank you very much, Father Gerry.
