Humility is a scarce commodity in our world today; it is one of the most disregarded virtues in modern society.
If you decide to be humble, to be calm and show mercy, you will be seen as weak. Violence and pride have become the symbols of strength. The violent are considered today the strong and powerful, but the word of God says to you and to me, that the greater we become, the humbler we should behave.
Humility is not foolishness, it is not a denial of truth. Jesus humbled himself but did not deny the truth that he is the Son of God.
The call to a life of humility is not a call to deny who we are and what we are. Humility is a call to surrender to the power of God, to acknowledge him as the all holy and the source of all we have and are.
In Ps 115:1 we read; "Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name be the glory".

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.

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.
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?
