Repository – volunteers needed

After many years of running the repository (shop), Veronica Hanlon has decided to step down from this duty. Fr Pius would like to thank her for the tremendous service that she has provided to the parish and he is now looking for one or two people to take over the shop on Sundays (Caroline Gordon-Duff will continue to run it at the Vigil Mass). If no volunteers come forward then sadly it will have to close. For further information please contact either Fr Pius or Veronica. Mass cards are always available for purchase from the sacristy. 

Sick List Notice

Sick List Notice: If your name or the name of a friend/relative is on the parish list of prayers for those who are sick, and would like the name to remain on the list, would you please print and then complete a copy of the Sick List Form which can be found here:  Sick List Form 2018 ‎. The completed form should be handed to the parish priest or delivered to the parish office please.

We need to make sure that you or your friend or family member has consented to their name being on the list. This is because the list can be seen by a lot of people, as it is available for anyone to pickup in the church and is also published on the internet through the parish website. In a couple of weeks’ time, the list will be restarted with the names of all for whom the parish have consent. This is necessary to make sure the church take proper care of your information and complies with current data protection law.
