There is some hope that we may be able to have people attend Church this Easter with suggestions that the present lockdown restrictions may be loosened for Easter.
Although this has not been confirmed, and we have no idea what that might look like both in which days and how many people may be allowed we feel that we should prepare as much as we can.

About our Parish
St. Vincent de Paul was born to a poor peasant family in the French village of Pouy on April 24, 1581. His first formal education was provided by the Franciscans. He did so well, he was hired to tutor the children of a nearby wealthy family. He used the monies he earned teaching to continue his formal studies at the University of Toulose where he studied theology.
There are some excellent Internet resources to keep people informed about what is happening across our society from a Catholic perspective such as the Catholic Parliamentary Office.
