THE TENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME - 9th June 2024


My Dear Brothers and Sisters,

If we are to be citizens of God’s Kingdom then we need to play our part in building it up. If we are not actively building the Kingdom by emulating Our Lord, seeking an ongoing conversion of heart and the conforming of our lives to the image of Christ then we are, instead, contributing to its destruction. Only, then, by keeping God’s Word alive in our hearts as Mary did, will we overcome all evil.

PARISH ELECTORAL ROLL - After the Annual Parochial General Meeting there was one outstanding task to complete which was to all fill in new Church Electoral Roll Forms. This process has been completed and our parish return has been made to the diocese. If you are 16 years old or over you can still fill a form in and be enrolled onto our electoral roll. It is never too late. Forms are on the back table where you picked up your Sunday Bulletins from.


REPOSITORY - CHURCH GIFT SHOP

This is open before and after Mass on Sundays and weekdays selling a wide range of items from religious cards, rosaries, books, crucifixes and icons to mugs, fridge magnets, church diaries, pens and note books.

Items can be seen in the glass case by the font at the back of church and in the glass case in the Vestry Hall. Please take a look.


OUR SUNDAY SCHOOL takes place each and every Sunday. If you have children between the ages of 5 - 12 they will be most welcome from 10 am in the Vestry Hall. Hope to see you there.
