Don’t forget to call in to the Church hall Mass and our post-Christmas Bazaar. Take part in the raffle, have a go on the tombola, and buy some cakes from our very popular St Hugh’s cake stall. Enjoy some refreshments, which includes bacon butties and Irish coffee, and get to know your fellow parishioners, and our wonderful fundraising team. Perhaps you could offer your help for future events - just make yourself known to them.

You are very welcome to pay on the night, but please confirm whether you are coming so that we can get the catering right.
Can you spare an hour after Mass on Thursdays? We need some more people to help us clean the church/hall; we are a happy bunch and once the work is done we like to socialise with a coffee and biscuits afterwards. Just stay after Mass on Thursday and ask one of the team what you can do to help. You may see a lot of cleaners working, but sometimes only a few can make it; so don’t be shy and come and join the team!
Saturday, 14th January after the 10am Mass and Sunday, 15th January after morning Masses.
Please come along and support our very popular and successful post-Christmas Bazaar. Take the opportunity to meet your fellow parishioners and also our wonderful fundraising team. Perhaps you could offer your help for future events - just make yourself known to them.
If you could donate prizes for our raffle and tombola stalls we would be very grateful. Donations can be brought into church or the Rectory on Sunday or during the week . If you would like a stall of your own, or can help on the day please speak to John Condon, or the parish secretary Susan Weaver, Tel: 01522 528961 or email: email@example.com Donations for the cake stall are also needed and can be brought in on the day.
Thank-you in advance for your support.
