This Is Our Parish

We seek to be an active, involved community.

Get involved in the spiritual and community life of our parish.  We are always looking for people who are willing to share their time and talents with our community - musicians, singers, readers, lay eucharistic ministers, altar servers, sacristans, greeters, flower arrangers, cleaners, visitors to the sick, catechists, ushers, and others.  Just a few hours a month is all it takes - and the courage to step forward.  Contact Fr. Luke by phone, email, post or in person.

Please also join in the social life of our parish.  We offer periodic social events (picnics, dinners, raffles, an Autumn Fayre, etc.) and invite parishioners and guests from the whole area to join in and strengthen the bonds that hold our community together.

Mass Intentions

Mass can be offered for anyone, living or dead, and for a variety of reasons including in celebration, thanksgiving or remembrance of people or events.  We include special occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays, exam success; any cause or need such as peace in the Holy Land or for refugees; or for your own "Private" intentions.  Please use one of the offering envelopes located at the back of the church to register your requests.  If you wish a Mass said on a particular date (anniversary, etc.), please let us know as far in advance as possible.

Donations for flowers

Donations for flowers are welcomed. Simply place your donation in an envelope (please gift-aid if eligible) available at the back of church and clearly mark ‘flowers’. Hand it to Father or one of the helpers after Mass.  Thank you.

Parish Lending Library

Both churches now hold a great resource of books on the Church, prayer, spirituality and biographies of saints. Free to borrow– simply fill in the record card and return when you’re done. If you have books you would like to donate, please see Father. Many thanks to all who have helped set up this resource.
