Update News & Thanks

  • The current Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) is nearing the end of its term of office. At its September meeting on Tuesday evening last, the main discussion was around the formation of a new PPC. A number of key areas of development for the parish were identified and it was felt that the new PPC would reflect these areas and be formed around them. The four proposed groups are:
    [1] Liturgy – preparing for Sundays, weekdays, Easter, Christmas etc.
    [2] Finance

The Parish Office in a new location is in the Community Hall (around the side of the front door).

In September the office will be open as normal Thursday 5th (10am to 2pm) but will be closed Thursday 12th & 19th and will reopen Friday 27th (from 10am to 12pm only). Please continue to send your notices to Back to normal in October!
