Dear Parishioners,

Wednesday is the feast of St Andrew the patron saint of our parish. We have Mass at 10.00 am.


We humbly implore your majesty, O Lord,

that, just as the blessed Apostle Andrew

was for your Church a preacher and pastor,

so he may be for us a constant intercessor before you.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

Best Wishes,

Father Behruz Rafat
