A BIG thank you to everyone who helped and supported our Parish Dance. Although not great in numbers, great fun was had by all! Everyone let their hair down, including a few wigs, and danced the night away.

I'm delighted to say that we have been able to send to Fr. Raj £230 towards the building of his church in Koppal, Southern India.     



Here's a sample of the many photos that were taken, which clearly show that everyone was having a good time.  Many thanks to Clare Allen & John Marsden for the photographs.

August 2, 2018

 

It was all so relaxing, sitting in the Parish Garden under cloudless blue skies and enjoying the warm sunshine whilst some music for easy listening was being played in the background.

August 2, 2018

At the 10 o’clock Mass that morning, it was encouraging to hear Deacon Stephen Morgan, our Leader for the Day, in his address to parishioners, explain how evangelisation in the parish needs to start within each one of us. ‘The change that is needed, the change that says ‘yes’ and does yes in response to God’s invitation begins in each of our hearts and cannot come to fulfilment without that loving, healing, forgiving embrace of the Lord in the Sacrament of Confession as a necessary ...

2014 Festival of Carols

August 2, 2018

This was the inaugural "Festival of Carols" within the parish and follows on, in part, from our New Evangelisation drive. This is challenging us to ensure our Parish life is clearly alive and vibrant, not just for ourselves but also within the community that we live. The aim of the Festival was not just a Catholic Service, but a Christian Service open to all.

Mary Lister rallied the troops and masterminded the whole event. It was a mixture of traditional carols sung in unison, choir ensembles ...
