Be Ready - Keep Watch

The Church through the readings this weekend invites us to reflect on the outcome of the lives we have lived so far.

Would it qualify us to join the Lord in glory or not?

Though the signs of the time speak of the nearness of the Lord, do not allow fear or anxiety to overtake you because the end is not so soon.

Therefore, let us keep working hard with a faith that is persevering, a hope that is firm and a love that is constant.

Altar Servers

We’re hoping to recruit some new altar servers to boost our great team of parish servers.

If you would like to join the team and you have already or are about to receive your First Holy Communion you are invited to apply.

Application forms are available in the Church Entrance Hall or please speak to Father Evangelist or Deacons Bill and Chris after Mass.

Musicians at Mass

We have a great tradition of music in our liturgy and young people over the years have performed at our services.

Along with the coming of the Baby Jesus, is the coming of a Baby Grand Piano. Jeanette, a friend from America has given us a piano. If there is enough space, it will grace the church and enhance our musical tradition.

Anyone who can play and would like to join our Music group, is welcome. It should arrive before Christmas, but it will take a few weeks before we decide on a position, tuning etc. 

Anyone is welcome to join our music ministry; we rehearse on a Friday night at 7pm for the weekend Masses.

Come and see.

Children's Liturgy

We are urgently looking for fresh volunteers for our Children’s Liturgy Group and Catechists for the First Communion Course.

Helpers with the Children’s Liturgy join a rota (one Sunday out of 5), will be given help and materials and must love children.

Catechists meet once a month for seven months and primarily assist parents to deliver the course materials and love to see the light of faith in children’s eyes.

Can you consider taking your turn?

Tea, Coffee & Biscuits

Tea and coffee available in the Church Hall after Mass on  most Sundays. 

See newsletter for details

Finance
