Message from Fr Alessandro:

To my parishioner family,

I hope and pray that you and your families are well in this time.   It is with great sadness that we have to suspend the Mass and all celebrations or devotions which include numerous gatherings, but we are still a family and will support each other. 

We have set up a FaceBook page to enable live Mass streaming only (see below) so that we can come together as one family in the presence of Christ.

In the short term please use the ihmparishsecretary@gmail.com address to contact us with any questions and check out this page for further details.

Some days ago I was often singing a song in the Church of Reconciliation in Taizé: “I am sure I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Yes I shall see the goodness of our God, hold firm, trust in the Lord”.

My prayer is that we put into the hands of our Father our lives, abandoning ourselves in Him!

Remember you are not alone!!!

God Bless you all

In fiducia cordis,
Fr Alessandro Renò
