Parish Pastoral Council: There will be a meeting of the PPC on Thursday 26th April at 7pm in the church hall. All are welcome to come along to engage in the discussion, which will include discussing pastoral suggestions made at the recent Annual Parish Assembly.

An opportunity to explore our faith: Would you like to explore the Catholic faith deeper? Whether you have grown up in the faith, or are new to it, we can all learn more about the Church’s teachings. A new group will be starting in the church hall, and will meet weekly on Tuesday nights at 7.30pm. All are invited and encouraged to come along, whether you want to come along weekly, or dip in and out of the sessions that interest you most. The first topic will be “Unpicking the Mass” where we will look closer at the origins of this celebration which is central to our faith, and we’ll unpick the parts of the Mass. Please join us this Tuesday, 24th April, at 7.30pm in the church hall.
