Update on Father Jim McGrath, a message from Chris McGuinness who is Fr. Jim’s housekeeper, dated 17th April 2020: thanks for the very many Masses, good wishes, cards, and prayers sent to Fr. Jim from all of you. Your kindness and concern has been overwhelming. Fr. Jim has been in Leighton Hospital 7 weeks, with no visitors allowed for the last 3 weeks, no one to bring him Holy Communion and struggling valiantly to regain some mobility. He tries to keep hopeful and cheerful but I can only imagine how difficult it must be for him. This week plans are in progress for him to be transferred either for respite care or home depending on his progress. Please continue to remember him in your prayers and pass on thanks, if possible in these days of isolation, to all who remember him.
