Parish Archive We are building an archive of the history of our parish and are looking for information – in the form of recollections, anecdotes, documents, photographs or any other material that would be of parochial interest.

  • Do you have photographs of events that took place either inside, or in the grounds of our current church – or the previous ones?
  • Did you go on an outing with fellow parishioners and have a story to tell or photographs of the occasion?
  • If you have documents, photographs, information or any items of interest you would like to share with us, please pass them to William McAllister. Please add your name and address, so that we can return the original material once it has been scanned. (Your personal details will NOT be published without your permission!)
  • The collated information will be published on our website.
  • We intend to hold a special Evening Event in the Hall, later in the year, when the Archive will be displayed.

If you are able to help us in any way, please contact either Maria Ford (01506 510 629) or Richard Mulholland (01506 827 689)…….. Thank you for your help!!

Book Sale  Springtime is a good excuse to clean out cupboards….and bookcases! If you are disposing of any books in good condition, we would be very grateful for them – just hand them to any of the Pass Keepers. We are hoping to have a Book Sale in late spring/summer. Proceeds will go to the Children’s Liturgy and the Flower Fund.

New Notice Boards and Hymn Books   Minutes of the Pastoral Council meetings will be posted on one of the very smart new Notice Boards in the Hall! Could we also please request that our new Hymn Books are treated with care. Thank you!

Volunteers Wanted Urgently….. to help with the Children’s Liturgy on Sundays. Please see Maria Ford for details.
