 Due to the collapse of Monarch Airlines new flights for our pilgrimage have been arranged. 

The dates remain the same but we are now flying from Stansted Airport with Ryanair. 

Please note that we have had to make a small adjustment to the coach fare which will now be £60. 
Your deposit of £150, plus an additional £60 if you are going on the coach, must be paid by Sunday, 22nd October. 

My apologies but as you can appreciate this has been unavoidable.  Noel.

Can you spare an hour after the Thursday morning Mass to help clean the church, church hall, and toilets? 
We are particularly in need of someone to clean the toilets, not the best job in the world but certainly a very important one. 
Also someone who can be responsible for cleaning the hall/kitchen.  Can you help? 
Just come along on Thursday and ask what you can do,
and if you are volunteering to clean the toilets speak to Mary Wilford who could do with the help. 

Church Yards: We are also in need of someone who can keep our yards tidy. 
Give them a sweep, do a bit of weeding etc., could you help? 
If you can please speak to Fr Matthew.
