I sincerely thank everyone who supported and was involved in organising our liturgical, social and fundraising events over the past 12 months. Together as a community we came together celebrated and enjoyed. Another exciting year ahead of us will provide us many opportunities to come together. So let us build our community together as a faith community.

Sunday 24th December - Christmas Raffle Draw. This is another good fundraising event, which doesn't require a lot of time but it does help to raise funds for the Parish. So Christmas Raffle tickets will be available from the month of November, the draw will take place at Coffee morning after 11.00 am Mass on Sunday 24th December 2017. I would hope that if everyone who comes to Church buys a book, we could raise £2000 but we don’t. So please can you support generously? Would you like to donate one of the Raffle prizes?
